I've read Ambers boxed Armstrong like this in their rematch. But, ultimately, Armstrong and Ambers split and, if Dempsey and Frazier fought twice, I'd expect a split, too. I think Dempsey would take three ought of five.

Anyways, I'm nowadays no way near so confident a prognosticator, and I'm not at all sure who would win a Dempsey-Frazier encounter. If you pressed me, I might go 6-to-5 odds, Dempsey favored.
