It looks very much like a baseball field with temporary bleachers moved in from right and left fields and a temporary ring mounted near what would have been the pitcher's mound. It looks very much like Washington Park but with smaller, less elaborate covered stands. Plus I think Washington Park's first baseline seats backed up pretty much to the street, not set back as here.

Also I can find no record of Dempsey ever fighting in Los Angeles/Southern California. San Francisco, Emeryville and Oakland but not down here.
