Dempsey and Greg

Recommended Posts

- - Supposedly Greb wanted the Dempsey fight, enough such that the claim is Jack Ducked Harry. 

I don't think the fight was ever in the queue for Rickard or Kearns, nor to I believe Greb, a middleweight could beat Jack. Greb was taking losses to Tiger Flowers in 1926, the year Jack ended his 3 year Hollywood sabbatical to fight and lose to Tunney which is also the year Greb was never more in this mortal coil, retiring permanently in Valhalla.

Wills was the fight the people wanted and that Jack tried unsuccessfully to make to his and Harry's misfortune.
