Tunney called out Wills very publicaly, and Wills response was muted at best.
Wills is openly responding above saying Tunney didn't want to fight him, he was hardly given much press exposure generally
Boxers often call boxers out to posture and then don't fight them. The newspapers claiming Tunney wanted the fight could have been paid by promoters. Wills does allude to Tunney been 'built up', promoters. been articles about. Note Tunney never fought a black opponent

What are you actually claiming here, that Wills law suit against Dempsey IN THE 30s
