Hobo was a way of life in harder times.
Pimping I think is wrong.
I don't hero worship Dempsey anyway, and by all accounts whatever he did in his early days he was a gentleman in his retirement.
Monzon was a repeated woman-beater during his heyday and in his retirement, to the point of murdering his wife with his bare hands, strangling her to death and dumping her body over the balcony.
I think that puts him beyond the pale.
But maybe I'm just not 'macho' enough to understand his lifestyle.
