Some believe he threw that fight. I don't know of any solid evidences. It's kinda inconsistent, I'll say that much. Dempsey had more than thirty fights by then (some reasonably outweighed) losing only once, Flynn was already 38, and according to most papers it happened within 10 secs in the fight with one punch (Dempsey had been knocked down 9 times in a previous bout and was able to get away with a draw. It happened in the first round, so that might indicate that Dempsey could be caught cold. Offed by one though? And against Jim Flynn? I don't know. Most of Flynn's official victories were by KO but none of those were against any decent fighter). Never heard of any definitive evidences, though, and Jack himself never mentioned anything about a fix. Not that I know of.
