Default Re: Jack Dempsey vs larry Holmes

I do think I've become a believer in Dempsey and his speed/power.

He was able to overwhelm those bigger than he and able to bully those smaller than he. However there's a huge difference between Willard, Fulton, firpo and Holmes.

A prime Holmes from any time before the spoon matchup should outbox Dempsey by wide decision maybe even a late stoppage after peppering him with his jab.

Good fight but and whilst I think Holmes wins, you can never write off someone with that power.
