    Flynn, who had a reputation for fighting mean and dirty, met Heavyweight Champion Jack Johnson in the ring at Las Vegas, New Mexico, on July 4, 1912. Johnson had beaten Flynn in a non-title fight in 1907. Johnson hadn't trained for the rematch, but was still able to hold Flynn off for 14 rounds. Flynn, frustrated, engaged in obvious head-butting of his opponent, so the referee ended the fight and awarded victory to Johnson. (The studio photo above shows Flynn in training for an earlier bout.)

    "Assuming an Irish name was not unusual in that era of boxing; there were Jewish fighters with Irish names too; and Jim Flynn, the only man who ever knocked out Jack Dempsey, was actually named Andrea Chiariglione. One reason for the name changes is that there were not enough Irish fighters to satisfy the large number of Irish fans." -- Pete Hamill, "Why Sinatra Matters" (Boston: Little, Brown, 1998), p. 58.
