A Forecast of the Dempsey Gibbons Bout – Strength Magazine – July, 1923

All in all, the indications are that this Firpo-Willard fuss will be a far better bout than the Dempsey-Gibbons bout. It will be two enormously powerful giants, the first real test in which Willard can do justice to himself since he beat Jack Johnson for the crown. And Firpo only has two advantages-youth and the fact that Willard may undere:3timate him, for Firpo will be a great deal better then than he ever was before.
