Rematches are often clouded In controversy but you can't beat Dempsey v Tunney 2.Great fight over 100,000 in attendance it is believed to be the first big fight where on a knockdown you had to go to a neutral corner.It cost Dempsey the fight the ref was slow to send Dempsey to a neutral & the count also.

Anyone out there that has never watched it worth a view they called the fight 'the long count'.Fantastic fight well worth a view for those that have not seen it.
