The heavyweight fight between Jack Dempsey, the Manassa Mauler, and challenger Louis Firpo, the wild bull of the pampas, lasted less than two full rounds. Dempsey knocked Firpo down ten times, and Firpo at one point knocked Dempsey out of the ring.
The fight took place at the Polo Grounds in New York City. Ringside seats went for a paltry $27.50. What a bargain!
