  • Rare photo from 1926 of the long 'missing in action' and soon-to-be-dethroned Champ, Jack Dempsey, sparring German LightHeavyweight Benny Kruger ahead of Jack's first match against his nemesis, Gene Tunney.  Little is known of Benny Kruger but I know he fought on the undercard of the famous return match with Tunney the following year when he lost on a decision to the seasoned and experienced fellow Dempsey sparring partner Marty Burke in a 6-rounder in front of an estimated 127,000 crowd at Soldier Field in Chicago, then considered the largest crowd to witness ANY Boxing Match.

  • Fantasy Fight Tuesday:
"That’s right, folks, my robust opinions are in The Times while the Manassa Mauler had to harrumph in the obscure New York Amsterdam News. How appropriate. For years I pursued frightened opponents around the world before winning the heavyweight championship at age thirty. Jack Dempsey got his title young and spent the next seven years dodging formidable black fighters, pummeling white stiffs, and fooling around in Hollywood. I don’t begrudge him the latter, but when a man’s most significant victories come over hundred-ten-pound starlets, he’s no champ, at least in the ring. And, please, disregard those who say I was bad as Dempsey in denying black fighters opportunities. I only did that after I became champ. At least I fought my brothers while I ascended. 
Study the record. Jack Dempsey, already a lazy titleholder, didn’t fight for three years before skinny Gene Tunney peppered him ten rounds. Dempsey was then an old man at thirty-one. At that stage I kept getting better. That’s why, if Dempsey had given me a shot in 1919, when I was only forty-one, I’d have boxed and confused him and made him stumble around the ring before I dropped the hammer. But of course Jack Dempsey wouldn’t fight me then. Maybe he will now. He’s only forty-six and I’m sixty-three and been losing most of my fights for years." JACK JOHNSON in a 1941 New York Times column.  THE REAL QUESTION IS HOW WOULD THE PRIME VERSION OF JJ & JD FARE AGAINST EACHOTHER?? GO...

  • Through 1924 and 1925 when Jack Dempsey went AWOL in Hollywood, he did actually Box 66 'Exhibition Bouts' in 24 months in-between appearing in movies on the silver screen and wrestling in beds with movie starlets.  Here he is pictured with one of his Manhattan gym stablemates, Frankie Monroe, who fought one of those 'Exhibitions' with him in October 1925 - four months after Dempsey had Boxed another of his 'Exhibition Bouts' against a certain future Heavyweight Champion from Germany named Max Schmeling.  If anyone doubts the validity of these type of matches... just remind yourself of how LITTLE Dempsey was able to 'take it easy' any time he had a pair of Boxing gloves on...? One of his regular sparring partners, put it like this, "he didn't know the meaning of taking it easy!  Every time you were in a ring with him was a fight for survival - you had to be switched on every second, otherwise you'd soon find yourself looking around  for your head!"

  • No Rose-Tinted Shades in Jacobs Beach: "That Dempsey, man!? What wouldn’t he be worth in the current heavyweight picture? Imagine a heavyweight like Jack coming along now!  When was there a boxing thrill like the one we got the night Luis Firpo knocked Dempsey out of the ring into Bunk Macbeth’s typewriter at the Polo Grounds in 1923? Will anybody who saw Dempsey and Firpo ever forget a second of that fight?  I was sitting in the first row behind Jack’s corner. When that big ox from South America crashed that wild right hand to Dempsey’s jaw and lifted him out of the ring, I came near swallowing my cigarette.  Dempsey was the big thrill merchant. Dempsey, Benny Leonard, Harry Greb and Paul Berlenbach. They always gave the crowd a run for their money and then some. I would have gone to Siberia to see Leonard. Henry Armstrong was another smaller guy who appealed to me.” UNCLE MIKE JACOBS, about as un-nostalgic a man as you're likely to find remembers the night he almost swallowed his cigarette...

  • In 1922 when the "Dempsey/Wills Saga" was the 'Pac-May' or Lewis-Bowe of its day, the 'Atlanta Constitution' like every other Newspaper was running 'will they/won't they' stories like a soap opera and in its June 5th edition they put the question to the legendary Sam Langford - who better to ask considering his STUPID 18 fights-worth of familiarity with Harry Wills at least? "Well if he ever fights Dempsey, MY money will be on the present Champion.  Dempsey is the greatest FIGHTER I have ever SEEN.  He hits twice as hard as Jim Jeffries and is as fast in the ring as James J Corbett." "He should've been the only Heavyweight anybody ever THOUGHT OF when they thought about the greatest Heavyweight Champion?" said the equally legendary TRAINER Ray Arcel, "I mean he had EVERYTHING?  He could punch...he could Box...he was mean and determined."

  • Ultimate Survivor: Jack Dempsey pictured in camp sparring long-time stablemate & chief sparring partner Big Bill Tate who worked with Dempsey his whole career in which he fought 49 times as a pro himself facing, amongst others, legendary Sam Langford an incredible 9 times (drawing and winning decisions on the first two occassions), Joe Jeanette on 4 occassions, Battling Jim Johnson former challenger to Jack Johnson, John Lester Johnson 3 times (the man who broke Dempsey's ribs) including one which ended in draw, the dangerous Kid Norfolk 3 times, Harry Wills 6 times (who got disqualified on one occassion against Tate), Gunboat Smith (who he won & lost to), Big George Godfrey another long time spar mate of the Champion on 2 occassions, and Bearcat Wright shortly before hanging up his gloves - of those only Langford and Wills KO'd him in his prime - though Langford only on one occassion in 9 fights and Wills only once out of 6.

  • In hindsight the Firpo win is the one which - coupled with the comparison of the film of Harry Wills against the same clumsy Argentine Bull - dispels the, possibly over-exaggerated notion that Wills was anymore of a threat to Dempsey than anyone else in the division at the time (which in no way erases that fact that the match coulda, and shoulda, happened)  but for me, by comparison Wills lacked, both, the snap in his punches to really hurt Firpo badly again and again like Dempsey did, and  killer instinct or venom to really going for a finish that may have really forced the argument that much more.  He seemed a little slow on the uptake when he had his opportunity.  Firpo was able to tie up Wills after he was knocked down much more easily than he could Dempsey ?  Dempsey was able to get a hand free and turn him to drive more shots in quick before he could recover.  And Firpo was hurt FAR WORSE by Dempsey yes Dempsey famously got hurt and knocked through the ropes too but he was engaging in all out war whereas Firpo described Wills as "more of a wrestler than a boxer" and not as engaging.  Wills also looked - if anything more straight up than Firpo who was able to find him with his own punches without to much difficulty whereas against Dempsey he was always braced for whatever was coming back if he over committed.  Everything points to Dempsey still reigning supreme for me.  But there is that wildcard of whether Wills was - out of habit - hiding just how good he was and saving it up ready to unleash once he finally got the man he wanted?

  • 🥊Boxing - William Harrison "Jack" Dempsey 🥊

William Harrison "Jack" Dempsey (June 24, 1895 – May 31, 1983), nicknamed "Kid Blackie" and "The Manassa Mauler", was an American professional boxer who competed from 1914 to 1927, and reigned as the world heavyweight champion from 1919 to 1926. A cultural icon of the 1920s.
The first true recognized world heavyweight champion. As a child he ran away from home and then his career began. At just 26, he became world champion. He was the first known knock-out artist, and his distinctive knock-out in the first round brought him fame - that's how most of his fights ended. He was popular for his aggressiveness and the rain of blows that he used to piss off his opponent. He won the world title by inflicting big damage on his opponent, breaking his jaw, cheekbones, ribs and causing hearing loss in one ear. He lost the title in 1926. On May 31, 1983 Dempsey died of heart failure at the age of 87 in New York City.

  • Whether you're in the Dempsey camp or not, one thing that mustn't be forgotten about the Champion of the 20s - at least the one that we see on the films we have available to us - is that however highly you think of him always remember the fighter you're seeing on film is already a veteran of 60plus fights - and remember aggressive swarmer types and guys who rely on speed and explosiveness tend wane sooner than your slick boxers.  Case in point: Imagine, say, for anyone who came up with a prime Mike Tyson circa 86-88 - but imagine how he would've handled not getting his shot at Berbick until he'd had 60plus fights?  Tyson hadn't had 60 fights by the time he'd fought his last fight at age 39 against Kevin McBride in 2005 - Dempsey had crammed in all those wars - many at catchweights - before he was 24!? One wonders whether, say, a Tyson, would've been ruined as a fighter if he'd have been through such a demanding (and likely damaging) early career before he even got a sniff of a title, and on reflection to what extent Dempsey himself was worn down as a fighter - even the kill or be killed version of Dempsey we see on the films circa 1919-23?

  • "Un campeón es alguien que se levanta cuando no puede..."
.
William Harrison "Jack" Dempsey (Manassa, Colorado; 24 de junio de 1895 - Nueva York, 31 de mayo de 1983). Fue campeón mundial de los pesos pesados entre 1919 y 1926. La International Boxing Research Organization (IBRO) lo ha clasificado entre los 10 mejores pesos pesados de la historia.

Apodos: #KidBlackie #TheManassaMauler (El asesino de Manassa). Entre sus defensas de la corona destacan los combates que mantuvo en 1921 con el francés Georges Carpentier; y el 14 de septiembre de 1923 con el argentino Luis Ángel Firpo, que en el primer round lo noqueó y lo envió fuera del ring durante 15 segundos. Fue en la llamada pelea del siglo por el título mundial de peso completo.

Dempsey terminó venciendo a Firpo, pero después de que Firpo lo hubiera noqueado y de que el referee y el público ayudaran a Dempsey a levantarse.

Técnicamente Firpo había ganado la pelea y Dempsey debió haber sido descalificado. Pero el combate siguió y finalmente, Dempsey le ganó a Firpo.

    Técnicamente Firpo había ganado la pelea y Dempsey debió haber sido descalificado. Pero el combate siguió y finalmente, Dempsey le ganó a Firpo.

William Harrison "Jack" Dempsey (Manassa, Colorado; 24 de junio de 1895 - Nueva York, 31 de mayo de 1983). Fue campeón mundial de los pesos pesados entre 1919 y 1926. La International Boxing Research Organization (IBRO) lo ha clasificado entre los 10 mejores pesos pesados de la historia.

Apodos: #KidBlackie #TheManassaMauler (El asesino de Manassa). Entre sus defensas de la corona destacan los combates que mantuvo en 1921 con el francés Georges Carpentier; y el 14 de septiembre de 1923 con el argentino Luis Ángel Firpo, que en el primer round lo noqueó y lo envió fuera del ring durante 15 segundos. Fue en la llamada pelea del siglo por el título mundial de peso completo.

  • No Rose-Tinted Shades in Jacobs Beach: "That Dempsey, man!? What wouldn’t he be worth in the current heavyweight picture? Imagine a heavyweight like Jack coming along now!  When was there a boxing thrill like the one we got the night Luis Firpo knocked Dempsey out of the ring into Bunk Macbeth’s typewriter at the Polo Grounds in 1923? Will anybody who saw Dempsey and Firpo ever forget a second of that fight?  I was sitting in the first row behind Jack’s corner. When that big ox from South America crashed that wild right hand to Dempsey’s jaw and lifted him out of the ring, I came near swallowing my cigarette.  Dempsey was the big thrill merchant. Dempsey, Benny Leonard, Harry Greb and Paul Berlenbach. They always gave the crowd a run for their money and then some. I would have gone to Siberia to see Leonard. Henry Armstrong was another smaller guy who appealed to me.” UNCLE MIKE JACOBS, about as un-nostalgic a man as you're likely to find remembers the night he almost swallowed his cigarette...

  • Through 1924 and 1925 when Jack Dempsey went AWOL in Hollywood, he did actually Box 66 'Exhibition Bouts' in 24 months in-between appearing in movies on the silver screen and wrestling in beds with movie starlets.  Here he is pictured with one of his Manhattan gym stablemates, Frankie Monroe, who fought one of those 'Exhibitions' with him in October 1925 - four months after Dempsey had Boxed another of his 'Exhibition Bouts' against a certain future Heavyweight Champion from Germany named Max Schmeling.  If anyone doubts the validity of these type of matches... just remind yourself of how LITTLE Dempsey was able to 'take it easy' any time he had a pair of Boxing gloves on...? One of his regular sparring partners, put it like this, "he didn't know the meaning of taking it easy!  Every time you were in a ring with him was a fight for survival - you had to be switched on every second, otherwise you'd soon find yourself looking around  for your head!"

  • “Conditioning is the most important factor in the life of a boxer. He may be as clever as Jim Corbett and Young Griffo rolled into one. He may be able to hit as hard as a Jeffries. But if he lacks conditioning, all these attributes mean very little. The first blows of the opposition will wear him down and his own first efforts will leave him puffing and panting.  To attain condition the boxer must train. And here we come to a very important subject. There are all sorts of ways to train and attain condition. And too many of these ways are either absolutely wrong, or they are so old and antiquated as to become useless.” Pre-Willard:
“I was training in Toledo long before Willard arrived. My trainer, Jimmy De Forest, an incredible dynamo, dedicated himself to me morning, noon and night. He and Doc Kearns, as always, disagreed on all but one thing. Neither of them wanted me to overtrain and go stale, so they had me alternate one week of training with one week of rest. “In addition to training, I would lay off food one day a month to give my body a rest. My sparring partners were Jamaica Kid and Bill Tate, a Senegambian whose wife was the camp’s cook. She wrapped cooked meat in towels to drain off the fat and grabbed my hand to make sure I didn’t touch any roughage. “Day after day I trained, up at six, then seven to ten miles of jogging followed by a hot and cold shower and a rubdown until breakfast, which consisted of meat and vegetables. After breakfast, a quick nap and then off again, sprinting a few miles. My typical afternoon consisted of exercise and sparring, which could be watched by anyone willing to shell out two bits. Afterwards, more sprinting until dinner. At night everyone settled down to chewing the fat or playing gin rummy. No drugs, no drinks and no women were allowed on camp grounds. Those were the rules.” #jackdempsey #themanassamauler #williamharrisonjackdempsey #kidblackie
