What the heck do you know about jack Dempsey, that Sam Langford, Gene Tunney, Mickey Walker, Jack Sharkey, Max Schmeling, Ray Arcel, Lou Stillman, Damon Runyon, and the 200 boxing writers who voted him the best heavyweight in the 1950 poll didn't know ? Why would you distort history by
besmirching this great fighter and ignore the opinions of EXPERTS who saw him at his PRIME, and raved about his unique power, viciousness and
innate toughness.? It irks me to read this from someone who is BLIND to history,and who thinks "screw the people who saw him , fought him and
raved about one of the very toughest, meanest SOB's that ever stepped into a ring " .But you somehow no MORE...Oh well !.
