Because at his best he was a beast, plain and simply ! If not for the "long count " fight in which Dempsey had Tunney down and hurt for 14-17 seconds,allowing for Tunney to clear his fogged brain ,Dempsey old and rusty , would have been again heavyweight champion.
And his stock would have soared...Purely on a H2H basis ,no HWT was more
endowed with a combination of speed, power and toughness in one package...
