Re: Primes,, Dempsey vs. Johnson: How would you advise each boxer?
I supose one question is whether you have Dempsey try for an early stoppage, or focus first on beating Johnson up. I might try to catch lightning in the first round, before Johnson had seen much of Dempsey's stuff. But if I didn't see anything encouraging, I'd switch Dempsey pretty early to making a pressure fight, hurting what ever he's able to hit.
Also, I don't think the stamina difference between Dempsey and Johnson is as great as some make out.
[EDIT] I'd look to get Dempsey throwing some heart punches.
