Charles had fast hands, but if we are going to do comparisons, he was uncomfortable with Pat Valentino's pressure and Rex Layne made things difficult for him before Charles took him out viciously.

A sluggish, methodical and off-pace Joe Louis is not the same as Dempsey in pursuit, in his prime. Dempsey finishes the job quicker than Marciano.
