World Heavyweight Champions - The Long Count Fight - Jack Dempsey vs. Gene Tunney Signed Cuts Display

The sport of boxing has always had its share of dramatic entertainment. The match-up represented in this display is no exception. It was the boxing rematch between world Heavyweight champion Gene Tunney and the former champ Jack Dempsey. It was held on September 22, 1937 at Soldier Field in Chicago and it became known as "The Long Count Fight". 

Two photos in this display show the dramatic moment captured in the seventh round. Tunney was trapped against the ropes near a corner and Dempsey knocked him down on the canvas. In one of the photos, Tunney is shown holding onto the rope to support himself. In the other photo, Dempsey is looking down at Tunney. The controversy was that Dempsey didn't get to his corner quick enough for the count to start on Tunney. Tunney ended up gaining his strength and getting back up. Tunney went on to win in a unanimous decision. 

The display measuring 17x22 overall showcases both of the fighters cut signatures on 2x4 parchment pieces in the center. It also has commemorative plaques and two portrait photos to tie all it together.
