The Story of Jack Dempseys Early Ring Career

Broadcast: November 26, 1955
Added: Aug 21 2021

As we continue to read Grantland Rice's autobiography, The Tumult and the Shouting, we notice that considerable time was spent with Jack Dempsey. Granny, throughout his long and wonderful life collected friendships of the greats, champions of the ring, the diamond, the fairway and the gridiron. Granny saw Dempsey for the first time in 1919 when the "Manassa Mauler" slaughtered champion Jess Willard at Toledo. He was one of Granny's all time favorites.
