Default Re: Jim Corbett/Gene Tunney Sparring Story

I recently gave an original picture of a sparring moment between Corbett and Tunney to Mrs Rudkin to pass on to Alan Jnr.

How much of a spar was this??? In the pic I had, Corbett appears in long dress pants and a woolen top. Tunney appears more appropriately dressed for such an occassion. The picture was also taken outdoors.

Corbett vs Tunney is rare. Most people who have it won't sell it unless they get something they want in a trade. However, there are other avenues to buy boxing dvd's, films or tapes. Sometimes you can get lucky on ebay.
have you got it mendoza?

I own Corbett vs McCoy sparring, and have seen Corbett vs Tunney.

Corbett vs. Mccoy sparring is not too hard to find. Corbett vs. Tunney is.

What a lot of cloak and dagger bullshit,as in" I'm an archivist and historian".
The clips from this spar are readily available,there is a 3 min segment on the following website.

Orphan Film Symposium.blogspot.com.
Included are renactments of Firpo staggering Dempsey , in slow mo by Corbett and Tunney.
At the end of the clip Dempsey is shown sparring too .
This was taken for a series called on Sportlight Film.This episode is entitled " On Guard".I have seen this many times and also the original full length version ,which goes on for around 9 mins as I recall.

Its hardly Greb versus Tunney,no need for espionage

PS. Check your pm but don't tell anyone. No dont, there's f**k all there

You are far from stupid ,though sometimes I think you beleive the rest of us are.
Go to google type in Tunney Corbett sparring .
You will get two or three lines of crap which is us on here ,the first Orphan Symposium that comes up click on it, it will give you frames of the spar ,scroll down to near the end where it says play video click on it and away you go

im not trying to be cloack and dagger. Mendoza told me in good faith to keep in quiet and i am a man of my word.

I want every fight film to be released to everyone whats the point of being greedy and not havin nobody to talk about it with.

Also cheers for the link.
