Along With Bill Heinz And Jimmy Cannon Concerning The Second Ali- Liston Bout For Wide World Of Sports; With Howard Cosell. Its Not A Fight Film, But It Is Note Worthy To Have Both Ex Champs Toghter On Film. Dempsey Looks Pretty Good For Being Near 70. I Cant Post It Perhaps Someone Here Can- "jack Dempsey And Rocky Marciano On The Phantom Punch"

Its great hearing Jack Dempsey speak .
His voice sounds a lot like Clark Gables(who was originally from Cadiz, Ohio)
Dempsey's parents were originally from West Virginia,same general area.

"Do you have Prince Albert in a can?"

Good stuff!

Rock'ys breakdown was fairly accurate, but it would have been MUCH
more interesting hearing Rocky and Jack breakdown how a fight would play out between them....

They do sound very much alike

Damn! Brutu, you're spot on.

Dempsey could've easily been dubbed in for Gable without anyone blinking (sans poor synchronisation). As such, obviously no mean timber to those pipes - very fitting for the Mauler! All else besides, great clip. No offense to Iron Mike but his voice is simply at the other end of the scale.

Jack Dempsey born June.24.1895,which would mean he was about 6 weeks from his 69th birthday here.


You cant tell from the grainy old film clips of the 1920's,


but look at the focus and intensity in his eyes!

It reminds me of the eyes of an eagle on its perch looking around.

BTW did u see the item concerning the attemtped mugging of Jack Dempsey
in NYC in the late 1960's in the old timers forum/Jimmy Wilde mugging thread?
Dempsey was around 73 years old then and he still managed to whupped some ass's.
The last (unofficial)KO victims of the Manassa mauler may still be around,(probably incarcerated)
as Dempsey said the 2 punks were about 20 years old as far as he could tell when he clocked their asses.
That would make the human refuse about early 60's now.
