Re: How would Jack Dempsey do against Sonny Listons opposition?
Ali was overconfident against Cooper and took his foot off the gas as he didn't want to stop Cooper until it was the round he predicted. If he was 100% focused neither Cooper or Dempsey would be putting him down
Dempsey wasn't really quicker than Liston either and Liston had a jab the quickest punch in boxing, Dempsey didn't. A hook is much easier to avoid than a jab
