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.
