Tunney called out Wills very publicaly, and Wills response was muted at best.

The story of Wills not blaming Dempsey is clearly not the case. I read Wills sued Dempsey in the early 30s for reneging on the fight contract. Does anyone know anything on this?
It was this which prety much drew a line under negotiations for a title fight.
