What, like Greb managed once against the far inferior Miske in three fights?

Power is the great equalizer. Comparing Greb's chances Dempsey with his performances against Miske is a comparison that shouldn't be made -Miske was a superb boxer who threw fast punches with a little mustard on them... "slick as a whistle and swift as a breeze" if you will. Dempsey's style finds origins in saber-toothed tigers.

On a side note, I did an asignment on "hunting strategies in sabretooths" a few years back. It seems that they grapled their prey to the floor and held it down while they administered a fatal bite to the neck.

In that respect they are more like Jim Jeffries than Jack Dempsey.

Sabretooths preyed mostly on much smaller animals ?

No that is where the comparison ends.

Now that is interesting!

Am I correct in remembering that your background is in paleontology? I still recall with pleasure our first (and perhaps my personal favorite) debate years ago where I made a reference to ethology and then we got sidetracked.

(Ummm... like I said, Dempsey's style finds origins in wolverines.)

If I was going to liken Dempsey to an animal it would be one he had much admiration for, the American Pitbull Terrier. He brings across a savage and relentless attack without warning or cessation.

When presented with a Colby bred pitbull (which he had requested), Jack returned the animal on the grounds that it was "to small to be taken seriously", which seems ironic given that these are the exact grounds Dempsey is often dismissed on right here on ESB.
