Default Re: Is it feasible to rank Wills over Dempsey in an ATG list?

I don't have any problem with that. Some people would like to see this sport in a sort of scientific way, but it will remain a damn sport and a good story will always remain a good story. Dempsey's story is better than Wills's, mostly because he was a small HW who displayed much courage when he knocked out a giant like Willard. I could tell this story to my children, if I had children. I don't know what I would say about Wills, as unfair as it is.

So, my answer is : you can rank Wills higher, but only because it's a boxing forum with enough guys with good knowledge to keep the other guys from throwing tomatoes at you.
