Default Re: Dempsey's Hobbo Days

I had an old book written by Dempsey, I lent it to someone and never got it back about 30 somewhat years ago but the book gave me a good glimpse into the life of Dempsey and how he was born for fighting, how he used to hang from the undercarrige of the railcars to avoid being hit by the conductors with poles. His arms became like steel cables, he also used to soak his hands and face with brine when he was 8 years old. He wanted to be Champion but his coal miner fights were unreal, he would go from town to town and barenuckle fight. Hardtimes
