how It happened.
The answer Is thia: The Jack
Dampsey who tried In vain to de­
fend the title of which he was so
prend was not the Jack Dempsey
of a few years ago.
Jack Too Old
Jaqk fooled everyone— includ­
ing himself. He thought, and he
told everyone, that he was as
good as ever. But the three years
during which he was away from
the ring had taken an Incalcul-
able toll.
Years between had taken too
much from the fighting stamina
of the man whom many believed
was the greatest heavyweight
champion ot them all.
One should talk of the new
champion rather than of the old,
but somehow. Gene Tunney was
not so impressive In victory.
Tunney was a better man than
Dempsey and he outpointed the
former title-holder with eaee. But
