Re: Jack Dempsey Vs. A black 120 pound Crack head who never boxed
Dempsey with a "modern" peek-a-boo guard could never have done the damage he did to Tunney's hands. Gene wouldn't possibly have lasted 15 with the battering Dempsey put on his fists, it was his great luck that both fights were only 10 rds. But his hands would not have lasted even that long against a prime Dempsey's face. Hell, it busted Carpentier's thumb already in the first or second round.
