    Jack Dempsey - Jess Willard Full Unused Ticket The half-starved young man who rode the roads and slept in the hobo jungles to survive, finally got the opportunity he had dreamed about all his life. On July 4, 1919 a lean and hungry Dempsey entered the ring as a determined man and from the opening bell tore savagely into the mammoth champion Jess Willard. Seven times Willard hit the canvas in the first round and absorbed the worst beating a heavyweight champion has ever taken. At the end of three rounds the courageous Willard could take no more and Dempsey was crowned the new champ. Here is a full ticket from that historic fight that is in excellent condition.
