JACK DEMPSEY and JOHNNY COULON The former bantamweight champ shows off on his famous show biz trick. Vintage b/w, 10x8, affixed to black sheet of same size. Dempsey is observing wrestler/actor Bull Montana trying to lift Coulon.Dempsey won the title from Jess Willard in 1919. He lost his title to Gene Tunney on September 23, 1926 in a ten-round decision after which he retired.
Named the greatest fighter of the half-century in a 1950 Associated Press poll, he won 60 professional fights, (49 by knockouts), while losing only seven. In the army during World War I, he taught hand to hand combat. Later he was a successful trainer and manager of a Chicago gym where many of boxing's greats, including Dempsey, Tunney, Joe Louis, Sugar Ray Robinson and Muhammad Ali practiced their skills.
Coulon also had a stage act in which he challenged people to pick him up. This might have seemed an easy thing to do, but Coulon's trick, as shown in this photo, was to feign a struggle while pressing a nerve in the neck of the assailant. He usually played heavies in silent and early talking films, but also proved adept at comic roles. Lightly creased, mostly in corners. Slightly rippled from mounting adhesive on verso.See more material from these signers. See more listings in our SPORTS (2,762). Please note that this is an authentically signed item.
