No big punching bag who ever lived survives 13 rounds with a prime hellacious puncher like Dempsey....
Give Dempsey his due...Our ANCESTORS who saw the man and raved about
his onslaughts were just as smart as you or me PP...Learn from the past...
Abe Simon have gigantism, very big thick dense bones making him very durable and immensely strong
Louis did take Carnera out much quicker ofcourse, who most consider significantly better than Willard
