name me any other Heavyweight champion in history who had World title fights that was as exciting or as legendary in terms of historical fights as Jack Dempsey.

Dempsey v Firpo - most knock downs and wildest most brutal fight in heavyweight history

Dempsey v Willard - most brutal demolition of any heavyweight champion in history with Willard suffering broken jaw, cheeck-bone, eye-socket, ribs and loss of teeth.

Dempsey v Tunney - Battle of the Long Count

Add to this the million dollar gates and Jack Dempsey was rightly in a League of his own as the greatest fighting machine who ever lived....... JAB scored him a C
