Re: Who Do You Rate Higher: Jack Dempsey or Jack Johnson ??
Johnson wins the battle of pre-title and longevity. Johnson's title run wasn't inspiring by any standard. Either way, it seems he's getting slightly underrated if he's falling into the near Dempsey status level in terms of greatness. Johnson does not have anywhere near the holes Dempsey has on his record and he beat up men of all colors (Yes, not quite during his title run. It was far less viable than Dempsey-Willis politically).
