Re: Knowing what we know, would you pick a PEAK Dempsey to beat Tunney?
I don't know. Maybe Tunney simply was to Dempsey what Holyfield was to Tyson(?). But I'm not 100% sure that Ali would beat a peak Dempsey either although Ali would be the favourite IMO. But Ali was vulnerable to the left hook. Not a good deficiency to have when you're fighting Dempsey.
