History

Editorial-A New Heavyweight Champion – Strength Magazine – November, 1926

With Dempsey now a member of the ex-champions of the world, and Tilden defeated in a singles match in the Davis Cup play, for the first time in his career, and also defeated in the National Championships, the past summer certainly provided two of the biggest up-sets possible. Neither Tilden nor Dempsey was ever as popular as each of them deserved to be. Both went down to defeat like the great champions they were and, strangely enough, both seemed to be more popular the day after they lost than they had ever been before.
