Default Re: Dempsey's vaunted run to the Title

All of Dempseys fights are silient film quality. Its like every 3rd frame is removed and they are grainy/not visually clear. Also add to this that all the films have been heavily edited over time. VERY tough to assess skills. This is why expert opinion/eye witness testimony from the experts from that time weighs heavily as it should. Otherwise you end up with revisionism....total distortion of the truth via looking back on history through todays eyes.
