Honestly looking at the heavyweight scene today I really have to question the idea that modern training of boxers today is better overall than fighters of the past.

I would be the first to say that some of what dempsey says you shouldnt do...should have more reliance on poultry and fish as a food source rather than the other meats. However, all in all the diet isnt bad.

The advice on running is very good I would say.

I would disagree with this weight lifting advice..however the stuff he did, push ups, pull ups, chin ups, wrestling, was likely as good as many weight room programs.
