Poor old Dempsey. Gone at 87, loved and admired by everyone,[well not you, McGrain, and Chris Pontius ]. shagged loads of film-stars, close friends with Fairbanks, Mix, Rogers,Chaplin, Getty etc, lauded by his contemporaries in the game, and many ,many others.

Received the biggest applause any time he entered a ring ,even 60 years after he retired. And the highest accolades of the trainers of his time. Arcel, Stillman etc.
Made and spent a fortune

Married three lovely women.

Where did it all go wrong for poor Jack?
Where ? ESB became a boxing forum...
