It was so long because the count doesn't start until the fighter goes to a neutral corner and stays there. At that time that was a new rule and Dempsey wasn't used to it and wanted to get at Tunney as he was getting up. The ref did the right thing not starting the count until Dempsey stayed in the neutral corner.
