“Gene Tunney “ on ESPN Humboldt Sports Radio 1340 AM Eureka, CA June 1-5 , 2015 at 7:55 AM
The Roaring Twenties boxing superstar undefeated-as-a-heavyweight champion no one remembers. He lost only one fight -as a light-heavy. Knocked down only once, retired in his thirties, married a millionairess,, read the classics, lectured on Shakespeare at Yale – and one of the greatest fighters and heavyweight champions who ever lived, beating Jack Dempsey twice.
