Can Wills Beat Dempsey? Strength Magazine – May, 1926

Every champ is always boosted, more or less, as the greatest ever, but nowadays we have come to recognize such talk as newspaper publicity for the benefit of the promoters. I am not saying that this attitude is incorrect, for we all know that the commercial side has to be considered as well as the sporting side; more so, since the fighter has to receive a fortune every time he pulls a glove.
