Quarry is better technically than Dempsey and makes less mistakes, his punches aren't as telegraphed as Dempsey's can be and he has a jab. Dempsey is the better puncher overall though and maybe has the better stamina. Quarry is bigger with an iron chin
Dempsey has the better stamina here though, so for that reason he has the edge as the fight progresses
Cut it anyway you want but Quarry probably beat better fighters than Dempsey and Dempsey also got dominated against his best opponent. He also drew against Miske, lost to Meehan and got KO'd by Fireman Flyn and resorted to cheating to beat Sharkey
Also Quarry looked shit against Frazier? I take you haven't seen that fight, the bigger Frazier had to walk through fire to get the win
If Quarry didn't have to fight black fighters to become champion and keep the championship how long would he have been champ for?
And refused to fight the other two best fighters of his era.
If Quarry didn't have to fight Ali and Frazier? Had an excuse to avoid black fighters in Norton, Ellis etc.
