Default Re: Jack Dempsey vs larry Holmes

I probably think this would be a better than most on either side (I confess that have not read a single post). I think Dempseys combination of quicness both hand and feet as well as his power would keep Holmes off balance. Holmes IMHO started slow but would do just enough to win early rounds in alot of his fights...her Dempsey would not give him such luxery. I think Dempsey storms out of the gate and fires away on Holme's making him even more uncomfortable than the unorthodox Spinks (realizing that dempsey/Spinks are not similar and that Holmes was not prime). Holmes settles in around the 4th, due more to his timing and comfort level of the pace that Dempsey's non-existant fatigue issue that people sometimes alude to. I think by the 11th Holmes will take the lead and hold it through out in a 9-6 type of decision.
