to fight one's corner


to fight one's corner
To fight one's corner — это защищать свои собственные интересы или действовать по заранее составленному плану. Фраза пришла из мира бокса, когда между раундами боксёры расходятся по диаметрально противоположным углам ринга, где получают советы по тактике боя от cornermen, т. е. своего тренера и секунданта.

Representatives of the government can be expected to fight their corner, rather than present a disinterested picture of the situation. — Представители правительства, вероятнее всего, будут защищать свои интересы, а не освещать объективную картину сложившейся ситуации.
