Heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey's "exploits distinguished the 1920s as 'the golden age of sports'… In the ring, he was a tiger without mercy who shuffled forward in a bobbing crouch, humming a barely audible tune and punching to the rhythm of the song. He was 187 pounds of unbridled violence… In 1950, a poll by the Associated Press named Dempsey the greatest fighter of the half-century."
