this post is awesome but selling dempsey a bit short. i've argued too that he isn't a heavy puncher in the grand scheme but he made up for it with speed. he was a vicious and tremendously fast puncher, his individual punches werent dynamite. it was the combination of that quickness and aggression that made him so effective
