Again, this is FOUR YEARS before he faced Dempsey.

The Willard that faced Dempsey hadn't fought in 3 years, was 37 years old and stupidly over confident. Unlike, say an old Larry Holmes, he had no great skillset to fall back on. His physicality was all he had.

Do you see the disconnect in your logic or do we need a to draw a diagram?
