Dempsey knocked out Sharkey because he hit him illegally in the balls. Sharkey's nutsack was in severe pain.

Lost his title to an ex-lightheavy, one of the few champions to do so.

Not in the top 10 for me. Inside the 15.
This.

He was a great champion no doubt but he gets so overrated on here its comical.

Borderline Top 15 and no higher, he didn't face the best of his era bar Tunney and was then dominated. Should be below the likes of Wlad and Vitali now
