Default Re: Dempsey's vaunted run to the Title

now, after that dominating run he is beat up twice by holyfield instead of douglas. in between the first lost to holyfield, he nut shots a win against douglas to set up the rematch and still loses handily.

how do we view THAT version of tyson and how different is that run from dempsey's own?

I'm guessing not that well.
