Dempsey was sometimes too aggressive for his own good and in this match up could spell doom, althought I wouldn't bet on that occuring hence why I picked Dempsey.
At least he would still be in the fight, with a chance to win.
Whatever you are...outskilled or out muscled, if you just go into a shell to survive, you have lost for sure.
Whereas if you keep trying to the bitter end, you're in with some kind of a chance...as Dempsey proved in the rematch with Tunney.
Great fighters like Dempsey, Louis, Marciano, Ali, Frazier, Holmes etc never
stop trying. It's a big part of what makes them great.
BTW, Dempsey is my pick here, too. Prime Dempsey is like a buzz saw.
