Also good is Harry's story about Willard keeping that big bolt that he claimed Dempsey hit him with. Must have been amazing to have seen that first hand.

Harry Carpenter continued to stick up for Tyson even after the Danny Williams loss. They made a fine impression on each other I think.
yeah, its fun to watch. carpenter and tyson made a good team.

that willard story about the iron bolt was scary. but i doubt the truth about it. cause dempsey was hitting him from down home.......full force all the way. and he hit him often.
and if you consider the punching power dempsey displayed in later fights, willard injuries are plausible.
