Jack Johnson Vs James Jeffries The most socially significant boxing match ever contested pitted world heavyweight champion Jack Johnson against former champ James Jeffries. Jeffries, who had hung up his gloves in 1904, had been coaxed out of retirement by big money to take on the cocky black champion in Reno, Nevada on July 4, 1910. The fight proved to be no contest as Johnson won easily. Race riots erupted all over the United States when the result was announced.

Dempsey Tunney Long Count It is one of boxing's most talked about incidents. In 1926, boxing master Gene Tunney outpointed slugger Jack Dempsey in Philadelphia to win the world heavyweight crown. Their rematch a year later in Chicago produced the famous 'long count.' Watch as Dempsey floors Tunney but forgets to go to a neutral corner as required by the new rule. Tunney takes a nine count but stays on the canvas for 14 seconds because of Dempsey's gaffe.
