History: On September 22, 1927, in Chicago heavyweight champion Gene Tunney defended his title against the man he took it from a year earlier, public favorite Jack Dempsey. There was great attention from the public for this rematch despite Tunney's easy win a year earlier. In round seven of the rematch Dempsey dropped Tunney, but ignored referee Dave Barry's instruction to go to a neutral corner. This afforded Tunney a chance to recover. The fight was forever more known as the "Long Count." Offered here is an original, first generation, panoramic photograph depicting the training camp area used by Jack Dempsey in preparation for this fight at Soper's Ranch in Ojai, California.
