I wish someone would tell me I'm wrong though.

And this is a genuine Dempsey-Greb footage.

Taking a step back to reconsider is perfectly rational and sober. But certainly, the in-screen frame counter is identical to that seen in the established Greb footage, the size differential is comparable, and some posturing of the smaller man matches posturing of action stills taken of Harry. (This is a nebulous stretch, granted, but I'd like to see this thing verified or squelched quickly.)

Nonetheless, thanks for sharing Turner72. Now change your avatar before I lose my lunch
I like his avatar. It inspired me to float and fry meatballs in ghee for a lunchtime hoagie. Large lumpy balls of brown turd swimming in boiling piss---YUM!

The Eastern Parkway Arena wouldn't be too far from me, Burt. I'd just be half a century too late.

In keeping with the theme of the thread, here are some more articles of pathological interest. Here we have Greb giving his thoughts on The Classic Forum's favorite fighter, Jack Dempsey in preparation for Tunney...

"I tell you he looks bad to me. There's a haggard look about his face and he is not working with that easy naturalness that a fighter in good shape mentally and physically ought to have. See what I mean? There isn't real pep in those blows. It's work for him, hard work. He's either worried, or stale, or just plain shot. I think Tunney is one of the best body punchers in the business, and it wouldn't surprise me if body punching won this fight. Certainly if there is anything wrong with Dempsey's insides body punching will show it. Tunney has a great chance to cop the title."

Dempsey-Greb will inevitably wind up on youtube. Now, how long before we see Harry in competition with Walker, and in Tunney I?(Much ado about nothing perhaps, but hope resprings eternal yet again!)

T, thanks sooo much for this phenomenal contribution!(Now though, you've done opened Pandora's Box, and we've GOTS ta see the motion footage now!)
Had to be a buzzkill, but Klompton has claimed this guy and his footage are a fake:
