Default Dempsey/Jeffries: How would you advise each fighter?

Prime Jack Dempsey vs Prime Jim Jeffries

What advise would you give to Dempsey if you could speak to him three months before the bout?

Ditto, Jeffries?

To Dempsey - Don't let yourself get hugged. Go for broke and try to knock his ass out early, but don't waste energy trying to wrestle with a guy who's got close to forty pounds on you. You're more explosive and a harder puncher than he is, but that'll change quickly if you play his clinch game for too long.

To Jeffries - Hug the shit out of him. The more you wrestle with Jack, the weaker he gets, and the longer this fight goes the easier it'll be for you to manhandle your way to a UD/late stoppage.

Basically, Jack wants a short fight and Jim wants a long fight.

I don't have much time . . .

but, anyways, I agree, radianttwillight, the fight may depend on strength and whether Jeffries is able to keep Dempsey from going on a roll.

I'd advise Jim to sneak an elbow in there Ezzard style.
