Salt water covers seventy per cent. of the earth's surface: a gigantic challenge to our curiosity and scientific skill.

In the honky-tonk world of America in the twenties almost everything was larger than life. It was called the golden age of professional boxing, and the heavyweight champion matched his era. Jack Dempsey was as tough as they come. Bill Brennan had met him before he was champion and reckoned Dempsey was lucky to win. Now he was all set to take the title from him.

The incredible had happened, the studious bookworm Tunney had defeated the Manassa Mauler. Dempsey wanted revenge, and his title back-but he was not the only available contender. Jack Sharkey, a brilliant boxer, thought he was next in line. There had to be an eliminator and this was a most important fight to both men.
