" RINGSIDeJ Polo Grounds, New York, Sept. 14.(By
Associated Press.) Jack Dempsey tonight retained - his
world's heavyweight title, knocking out X.uis Angel Firpo, the
"Wild Bull of the Pampas", in the second round of one of the
fiercest, fastest and most spectacular battles in the history
of pugilism, r -i - fj, ; ,;;' ?
- The champion , floored his Argentine challenger fiye
times in the; first round and twice in the second round before
a short right uppercut to the jaw sent Firpo down for the last
time. But in the three minutes and 57 second of whirlwind,
-terrific mauling, Dempsey himself? once was knocked clear
through the ropes on top of the press benches and groggy
under a bombardment of mighty rights.
Before Firpo went hurtling down to defeat, carrying with
him the shattered hopes of a continent, he gave a vast, fren
zied throng of 85,000, one" of the most thrilling and, courage
ous ring exhibitions of all time. Battered, bloody and groggy,
he "showed hfs marvelous stamina by coming back with a
whirlwind crushing drive toward the close of the first round
that had the title holder tottering, closer to .losing his crown
than at Any time in his career. I" r -V-f: -. .-
Pirpo" fought the best fight of
his ' ckreer. e challenger's
inlghty right was nerer mighteler.
. Against the relentless power and
versatility of the champion's farl.
oua attack he went, dpwn, but in
defeat he, gained more glory than
'Jn any battW of his career. ;?He
was beaten but his" menace to th
. heavy weight - throne wase not re
: moved. " " ' '
From tlie tap of the first gong,
these two giants tore at each
other with attacks of unrestrained
savagery Firpo was the first to
land as they came to close quar
ters but 1 in a flash, the champion
plunged, shot In a right to the
bqdy and , left to the Jaw, send-
Ing the challenger crashing to the
floor on Ms side. V .
r: " Down .Twice
"Momentarily 'ased'. but' with
eyes ablaie, Firpo rose to his feet
after a short count and rushed
back. ; Again he was : met by 'a
withering drjve and went down
for 'the" second and third, times;
Blood flowed from his mouth, he
waa stunned and' Dempsey let
loose the most terrific power of
his swings as he sensed victory.
Firpoj went down twice more and
both time it seemed the end had
comeBut after a count pt nine
on hla fifth knockdown, theshal
lenger suddenly sprang at his ad
versary like a wounded tiger, an
Infuriated Jungle beast.
Swinging with flall-llke rapidity
and sledgehammer power" the
"famous right thrust that had
brushed aside all opposition be
fore and swept him to fame, the
Argentine rushed at his adver
sary. Caught "unaware by this
atunnlng comeback on the part of
the man be had believed .beaten
Into submission, Dempsey reeled
under the assault. A right to the
side of the head sent Dempsey to
his knees and as he arose another
swing knocked him from his feet
and through the ropes 6n'iop of
the newspaper men huddled, at
the edge of the ring. ; .
Champion '?
Dempsey's knees wavered as he
climbed back in: He clinched to
save himself. Firpo couldn't fol

as one of the most sensational of
all fighting history came to an
end with both gladiators on their
feet. .' : t
Unleashed for the second round,
they leaped at each other "once
inore. Dempsey again was the
quicker on the attack and FirpO
went down under the crushing
blows of the champion. He arose
only to go down once more. Now
there was no doubt of the out

and tottering, forced himself to
