: BATTLES OF DEMPSEY AND CARPENTIER
The string of 1? knockouts
convinced boxing promoters and
the public it large that Dempsey,
in tplte of unpopularity because
of his failure to get into actlvo
military service In the war, was
the logical nan to meet Jess Wll
lard fbr the heavyweight cham-
r.ihin of ihe world. "Tex"
Rickard clinched the bout.
The principals met in Mew York
Feb. 9, 19l! to agr-- to condi
tions for the bout. The statute
of New York at that time made
illegal articles for a boxinr bont
ined in that state. Accordingly
when conditions had been settled.
