Default Re: Brutal Dempsey sparring Knockout in slow motion

Interestingly there is a clip within that video that shows the end of the Dempsey/Sharkey bout from a completely different angle than the film that is typically shown. It was filmed by Pathe France. Obviously they must have filmed the entire bout and what a FIND if this was ever to come to lite! HOWEVER I did contact them regarding this and their film of the Firpo fight (they were there also) and they told me all they had was that short clip of the Sharkey fight and that was it. Someone somewhere must have them unless like other nitrate films they have destroyed themselves over time.
