Default Re: Tunney V Sharkey, Willard, Brennan,Miske, Firpo?

Miske wasn't up to much when he matched Dempsey; he'd lost to Levinsky and Norfolk in the run up to that fight. His chances of upsetting Tunney on that kind of form is almost nil.

Tunney only lost to Greb. I don't think he is vulnerable to clever boxer types at all. He thrashed both Carpantier and Gibbons and any trouble Loughran gave him came just before his own formidable prime. I'll take Firpo's puncher's chance over the chance of his actually being out-boxed by this lot any day of the weak. Sharkey might take rounds with a combination of skill and size but I don't see him nicking it.
