    Salve! Si tratta di un western. In un paese viene affisso questo manifesto per richiamare la gente a un incontro di pugilato a mani nude:

    "Grand fight Saturday next. Any man completing a five minute round against Iron Man wins the $250 purse"
    "Grande combattimento il prossimo sabato. Qualsiasi uomo che resistera' per i 5 minuti del round contro Iron Man vincera' la borsa da 250 dollari...."

    Ma non mi convince affatto. "Completing" puo' voler dire "vincere"?

    Grazie.
