Dempsey was very good at bullying the fighters of his size and excellent at utilising his advantages against those bigger than her but i don't think he has the durability of he's better when it comes to taking what Sam will dish out.
Dempsey MADE his reputation on bigger fighters than he and Sam Langford
while a great "small heavyweight", was kod numerous times, so Dempsey would most likely prevail in a bout prime for prime...Two tough great heavyweights, and I go along with a Dempsey and Louis,and young Mike Tyson over Langford IMO. I could be wrong of course...
