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

I agree with you.

Ali is a nightmare incarnate for Dempsey, the things that Dempsey does badly - one strategy fighting, over-reaching with big punches, over-commiting if he smells blood, being shortish - are all the things Ali loves.

Ali would knock Dempsey out in my view.

But I think I would probably pick Dempsey to catch prime Tunney. After all he managed it once whilst past it.
