"The Long Count" Tunney vs. Dempsey by Joseph Golinkin

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." Artist Joseph Golinkin has captured the critical moment of the fight in this wonderful period lithograph. Not numbered, but limited to an edition of 50 and signed in pencil by the artist. Minor spotting. 17" x 21" lithograph framed to 23" x 28". Very scarce.
