The following link, which is an article by Monte Cox, pretty much sums up my opinion regarding Dempsey.
This was discussed on the classic boxing board once before. That article is great. He wrote another article on how Marciano is overrated by a lot of people today, in it he mentions that Rocky wouldn't stand a chance against Dempsey. I like that one, too. I suggest everyone here saying Marciano would win read both articles and educate themselves.
