It’s a Rough Old Sport – Strength Magazine – March, 1927

At a well known club a small group of men had been discussing the oncoming Dempsey vs. Tunney fight. The conversation drifted from one sport to another. One old gentleman, who had entertained very definite opinions regarding the Dempsey-Tunney fray, added in a very self-satisfactory manner, “Yes siree, gentlemen, Tunney hasn’t got a chance except for the loser’s end. I wish I was young again so I could take a shot at that. I was pretty handy with the gloves in my early days. There is nothing like boxing to build up your muscles and make a man of you.”
