OLD FOGEY, where have you been so long?
Back to topic, IMO, Dempsey´s title reign compared to Marciano´s is worser, he struggled with one- dimensional punchers like Firpo, I don´t give him much chances against Rocky, Marciano had a better chin, more raw power in both hands, stamina-wise both were very good, the only advantage Jack had, was speed (combinations and handspeed), I see a midround Marciano- TKO...
Marciano TKO 9 Dempsey
(on points 77-75 in favour of Marciano)
