If size is such a crucial factor, and the smaller gloves make such a difference, then give credit to Dempsey's chin without trying to make cheap excuses!
How many guys that outweighed him by 30 lbs did Dempsey fight? Three? And if guys like Georges Carpentier and Battling Levinsky were the hardest hitting heavyweights on the planet, then I'm Peter Pan.
