Default Re: Dempsey's vaunted run to the Title

My point with the above post btw was not so much to denigrate Ali's per-title run as undeserving, but more so to illustrate that it didn't in any way influence how great a fighter he was - we all know how great a fighter Ali was and he still that great whether he had of fought another couple of big name fighters on the way up or not - point being Dempsey fought who he fought in those days - to use this as an indication that he wasn't all that is just clutching at straws really - like Ali he was one of the greatest champs we've ever had whether he fought the guys he fought he fought or whether you added a Sam Langford or a white Harry or a black Harry to resume or not
