Dempsey had slowly developed into a skilled boxer and made the executive decision to box rather than work. From 1911-1916 Jack Dempsey migrated to small mining towns and fought in the saloons wherever he could. His most common place to fight was “Peter Jackson’s Saloon”, which was located in Salt Lake City. Hardy Downey, the organizer of the fights, was furious when Jack knocked out his first opponent in just one punch, he made him fight against before he gave him his money. One day in 1914 his brother, Bernie, fell ill and Jack actually filled in for him and won it decisively.
Getting acquired from three different NBA teams and eventually leading towards getting cut from two and on the verge of the third, Lin came off the bench to produce a record-breaking streak of wins that opened up an opportunity for a playoff berth.

However, boxing as sport never actually elevated since the beginning of time people still go and sit in a large auditorium and pay for tickets to watch the big fight between two individuals who their ultimate goal is to hurt each other in order to win.
