Default Re: Jack Dempsey vs larry Holmes

Stylistically this certainly favours Dempsey. I expect Dempsey to rattle him with his superior foot speed and make Larry cautious wit ph his combination punching and fire power. When Larry became cautious, not only did he throw the jab less frequently, the amount of straight rights he threw also deteriorated. I don't think Holmes could keep up with the superior work rate and after starting off relatively well, Larry would have all his momentum taken from him in the second half of the fight and stopped in the championship rounds.
