Very good point. Just curious, Did Dempsey ever fight 15+ rounds in a fight? I know Jack Johnson Did. Willard conquered him. But then was blown out by Dempsey & most Dempsey early challengers were simularly stopped early. By the end of Dempsey's rule. The 15 round limit had been pretty much established. A prime Dempsey-Johnson bout for 20+ rounds would have been something.
