On September 14th, 1923, Heavyweight champ Jack Dempsey met Luis Angel Firpo, A.K.A. "El Toro de las Pampas," in front of 80,000 people at the Polo Grounds in New York City. Firpo was the first Latin American to fight for the Heavyweight title in boxing history, and he came out swinging. He sent Dempsey through the ropes in the first round (seen in the iconic painting by George Bellows). Dempsey responded by dropping Firpo 7 times in the first round and eventually won the fight by KO early in the second round. Boxing is the best.
