SOLDIERS FIEDIJ, Chicago, Sept. 22.-Gene Tunney, the mar
of destiny, is still heavyweight champion of the world, but his crown
came perilously close to being toppled from his head tonight by the gal-
lant thrusts of the old warrior, Jack Dempsey in the greatest boxing
spectacles of all times.
Tunney's hand was raised in victory at the end of a smashing flash-

sensational finish after being knocked down for a count of nine in the

STILL A CH MPION"evenn r""d by Dempseys vicious,
two-handed attack.
Only one second, in this seventh
round, separated Dempsey from the
greatest victory of his career, and an
achievement no other ex-champion had
.ver recorded, but Tunney, back on his
fet, slipped from range, cleared his
x- head, and weathered as stormy a ses-
Sion as he ever has experienced.
Safely past that crisis, Tunney fin-
ished the last three rounds like a
champion, regaining confidence, tak-
ing the aggressive and beating Demp-
sey into defeat with a two-handed,
well timed attack to the head. With
his title in danger, Tunney had the
stuff to put on a victorious rally. At
the close of the final round, Demp-
sey, both eyes cut and badly bleeding,
was groggy and reeling, "out on his
feet." So battered was the old cham-
pion, his last charge was over, that
he did not seem to know the battle was
over and had to be led to his corner.
