Cool. Sure it was wholly a ruse? He was an awesome carouser & womanizer. He could've beaten Dundee off his peak. Serious all-around stud. When the subject of a Dempsey-Greb fight came up Kearns was quoted as saying "we want no traffic with that sonovabitch!" Shame that none of his fight films survived.

Thanks. I already had the PDF though. I converted it for my Kindle & was amazed. I read Dempsey's last biography & somehow wasn't expecting that level of technical knowledge from him, given his background & style.

For my shortcomings, I only recently learned that I had a User CP site. Ha! I really should learn to improve my IT skills.
Greb. Hmmm. Gave Tunney a lesson and allegedly gave Dempsey all the trouble he could handle in Sparring, hence your Hearns quote. Well done you.
