Thanks Grant..........that was also very helpful.....

It seems like he was a little provocative and really sure of him self.

I found lots of stuff in those archives which sheds further light on him.

By the way, I'm really impressed with these message boards and the high degree of knowledge you all have and willingness to help out those who aren't quite up to speed.

Corbett can be seen on film for 26 minutes vs Fitzsimmons, sparring for W.W. I bonds with Kid McCoy ( film is up close and clear, and Corbett looks very quick ), mock sparring with John L Sullivan in 1910 in Jim Jeffries camp, and doing a demonstration with Gene Tunney.

You can purchase a Jim Corbett DVD with all of the above ( Except the Tunney stuff which is on line ) for about $30.00.
