TKO Radio: Dempsey and The Wild Bull
“In September 1923, 85,000 packed into New York’s Polo Grounds to see all three minutes and fifty-seven seconds of it. Nobody asked for their money back.” Nothing steals the spotlight more than an action-packed heavyweight clash and for this podcast we wanted to bring you just that. John Jarrett joins TKO Radio to talk about his new book, 'Dempsey and The Wild Bull: The Four Minute Fight of the Century'. Fans and journalists regard it as one of the most sensational world heavyweight championship fights ever - champion Jack Dempsey and his hammer-fisted Argentine challenger Luis Angel Firpo left it all in the ring, except when Dempsey was knocked through the ropes and into the front row!
