It's a difficult fight to debate that one because both sides have very valid arguments.
On one hand the most similar guy jack fought he destroyed.
On the other wlad is leagues better than that version of Willard.
I think Dempsey can't be written off because he has proved he can do that damage if he gets in close.
The real question is will he ever get in close. He's against one of the finest out fighters in boxing history. Noone has ever been able to get inside against wlad to my knowledge.
Purrity and Brewster outlasted him and Sanders timed and countered him from the southpaw stance. Peter did drop him but they were lunging rabbit punches for the most part.
I was sold on wlad beating him earlier in the year but the more I think about it the less certain I am.
