It would be intresting to see in todays money what someone like Tunney or Dempsey were worth.
Tunney was worth $2 million in 1928 when he retired. That certainly comes out to 20 to 30 million, at least, in today's money. But Tunney then married the heiress to the Carnegie steel fortune, so he was a billionaire by modern standards.
