Norfolk looks pretty good, Tate not so much

Been done before PP. Consensus was that Tate was a complete waste of space.

Too bad Dempsey didn't fight Norfolk

Tate held Harry Wills to a draw.

Norfolk despite being left hook and clinch happy looks pretty useful. Tate looks like he doesn't have a clue

Wills going from decimating both to drawing with Tate, is a massive drop in form for Wills or a massive improvement in Tate

Could be a fluke. Wills was still winning like crazy for a few more years.

Impossible to decipher all those results.

Bill Tate may have been better than this footage indicates. I believe his training for this Norfolk bout was getting beat up daily by Jack Dempsey, who topped the bill against Bill Brennan.

Tate had won a 6-rounder against old Sam Langford a few months earlier on the Dempsey-Miske under card.

Not all these fight results and performances should be taken too seriously though.

I suspect if all the Wills-Langford fights were available of film some of you here would be horrified by most of them.
