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

johnson had to overcome a lot more than Dempsey did just to get a title shot. Being black was a major handicap because the unwritten rule said the HW title was off limits to blacks. Dempsey never had to go through the difficulties Johnson did. Therefore, i have to vote for Johnson.
