Re: Dempsey's vaunted run to the Title
I find it interesting how it is generally accepted that modern fighters records are to be scrutinized and criticized at every possible opportunity, but fighters of past eras should be immune to criticism and their records are to be left alone. This is especially the case if the past fighter has 'legendary' status, deserved or not.
I don't have time to look closely, and put it in a historical context, but I don't see why anyone should be immune to criticism. People are too defensive about their favorite fighters, that much I know.
