Re: What sort of fighter was Harry Wills
Dempsey's infighting is hardly better than average because there's so much film of it.
Wills' infighting was amazing because there are newspaper reports and where and whether it exists on film it's extremely hard to find.
Dempsey was lauded in ink but it doesn't count because those writers were professional myth-makers.
Wills was lauded in ink and that proves he was a superior fighter to the others of his era.
