Default Re: Who Do You Rate Higher: Jack Dempsey or Jack Johnson ??

Goto be Johnson

Resume - Johnson, fought everyone in his era, albeit maybe not at the right times.
Longevity - Johnson fighting at the top level for 13years
Dominance - both pretty dominant, although Johnson more so, Dempsey has more draw/losses near his prime
H2H - I'd say Johnson is more complete at figuring out different styles

Did he though? Fleischer was 10 when Corbett lost to Fitz, 11 when Corbett lost to Sharkey and 13 when he lost to Jeffries for the first time

If he rated Corbett highly it was based on piecing together history, much like we do
