But of course you know all this anyway.
A victory over Sharkey is a great achievement? Dempsey was fading already, removed from his prime by several years. Who didn't knock out Maher, and with even greater weight difference than in case of Fitz? Then a victory over light cruiserweight Corbett adds so much weight?
