‘A boxing-match is a story which is constructed before the eyes of the spectator; in wrestling, on the contrary, it is each moment which is intelligible, not the passage of time…

The spectator is not interested in the rise and fall of fortunes; he expects the transient image of certain passions.’

Barthes, Mythologies, 1957
