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, raffle coupon used to win 10 tickets for the Dempsey-Tunney II fight.
