Default Re: Wills Turned Down $5000 Chance To Spar With Challenger Dempsey In 1919

Arcel stated Wills was a good journeyman and Dempsey would beat him. Both Johnson and Langford picked Dempsey to beat Wills. Fleischer wrote Wills size and lack of speed would make a short night if he fought Dempsey.
