Default Re: Knowing what we know, would you pick a PEAK Dempsey to beat Tunney?

Dempsey at his peak was very motivated and filled with desire. In my opinion he would beat Tunney. Probably hand Tunney his first stoppage loss.

Fighters with Dempsey's style are very dependent on reflexes, speed and timing. In other words, their effectiveness declines rapidly as they age. That is why Tunney gave Dempsey such a bad beating twice.

I do think it would be a very hard fight for Dempsey though.
