Except Dempsey never fought Carnera.

He fought Williard.

Dempsey said he was 180. Carnera weighed in at 245.

Paul Williams vs any welterweight, even made Margarito seem small

I haven't seen this fight but 6'4 Oosthuizen fought 5'10 Zuniga the other week.

Yep, I couldn't remember the name. The name I was thinking of was Firpo that put Dempsey out of the ring.

Until Valuev the biggest disparity in a title fight was Carnera-Loughran.

Off the top of my head I can't remember whether Holyfield or Haye was lighter when they fought Valuev.

Gamache V Gatti was redicolous.
Rubio vs Chavez Jr was pretty awful but not as bad as most mentioned here.
also Zbik vs Chavez Jr was terrible.
I thought Mayweather Vs Marquez was bad too.

A big size differential does not mean mismatch.
Often Times the 5'10 Tua or Tyson would **** people up.

Sherman Williams who is 5'11 gave the 6'6 Helenius a hard fight and almost put him to sleep in round 6.

Mismatches come about when one guy has more skill.
