In 1940 a forty five year old Jack Dempsey hadn’t boxed for 8 years when he was challenged by Clarence ‘Cowboy’ Luttrell to a fight after Jack had been criticised by Lutrell when Dempsey refereed a match between Luttrell and another fighter. A reckless thing to do to the man who was Heavyweight Champion of the world from 1919 to 1926. Cowboy Luttrell was nevertheless courageous but after Nat Fleischer counted him after two knockdowns, Jack Dempsey hit him with the Play Of The Day! So long, Cowboy.GenresSportsDocumentary and Biography
