Default Re: Do You Think Jack Dempsey Is Overrated?

Overrated by those who rate him top5 and pick him to beat more advanced or physically bigger fighters like Foreman, Ali, Tyson. His resume is 1 of the weaker 1s but he was very dominant winning impressive against the contenders he faced, he is 1 of the most exciting champions to watch and a great story and a very likable character

BTW he personally didnt draw the colour line that was part of the politics of his time. He didnt prove himself better than the likes of Wills and didnt build a great resume because of this. If he did beat Prime Wills, Old Jack Johnson, Old Sam Langford and Greb his resume would look far better and the loss to Tunney wouldnt hurt him as much
