Default Re: Haye v Dempsey

I don't think either man can take the other's power. I really don't.

Haye is bigger and quicker but Dempsey has beaten better opposition.

Compare how the two fared with the giant of their era and it's hard for me to justify Haye being the better boxer but I think he has got a stylistic edge here.

One thing's for sure, if Jack comes in like he did against Fulton he'll get ktfo. If he fights like he against Willard, cautiously closing the distance and finishing off with brutality, I say it's almost an even money fight.

Jack was hungrier, Haye often didn't put the effort in during his career and he's somewhat of an underachiever legacy wise despite being an over achiever financial wise.

I make Jack a slight favourite, not enough for me to put any money on. 60-40.
