Default Gene Tunney series

Some Good articles here.

This one has some very early points losses to a figther named Green. Though these may be better described as amateur fights, i am not sure.

this is a good won. It talks about Tunney Weinert and the Tunney Loughran fight, which tunney seems to claim as a win, with a knock down early and i think he says it is the seventh that he has loughran in trouble as well.

And here is a really good version of Tunneys version of the second greb fight. He certainly seems a lot surer than others on here that he won the last 4 of 5 fights with greb.

Well make it counterbalanced by Grebs own words of kicking Genes ass all over the ring.

here is another Greb fight, as well as a fight with Ermino Spalla, who is one of the many forgotten fighters of the era.

This one covers the Carpentier fight where tunney was weight drained.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

And this one covers the last Greb fight among others. Tunney indicates he could have stopped Greb in this one.

I am not sure the Wills fans are going to like Tunneys description of the Wills situation here.

And here is Gene tunneys last article where he talks about what he shall do as champion. All in all, i think his reign was an honorable one, even if it may have relied on perfect timing. Gene may have been quite a bit better than often given credit for.
