I Don't Think Dempsey Would Wear a Tom Ford Suit.
Fit this guy. Better not get too close.
At 75 years old Dempsey was leaving a Muhammad Ali bout at Madison Sq and two thugs decided to mug the grey old man. He knocked them both out and held them for cops.
He started fighting in the coal mines in Montana at a young age. He fought to survive. ( look at that collar )
That's where he got those forearms. He weighed 180lbs. His hands and forearms look like someone sewed on Lou Ferrignos.
What a nice guy. And he was. A true gentleman.
But do not cross him.
He will kill you. He killed men in the wild western towns where he worked as a bouncer in a whore house. His first wife was a whore.
He destroyed 6'6" 265lb Jess Willard in 1919 to win the title.
His bobbing and weaving style "The Dempsey Roll" made him very hard to hit as he circled in closer and closer to kill you.
A man of rock and iron from a time gone by. I don't think he'd wear a Tom Ford suit.
With Tunney. ( Tunny ran. Dempsey lost)
With Harry Grebb. The one eyed windmill
