I just ignore it after a while. Why, in 1951, would a panel of distinguished boxing writers pick him as not only the greatest heavyweight, but the greatest fighter of the first half of the century?

i don't rate dempsey as a top ten heavy.i don't rate old timers at all really versus more modern fighters.

Having spent a lot of time at sea i've always liked this shot.

I'm pretty sure Jack Dempsey is referee.

Kind of a poignant one this - the begining of the end for the great Joe Louis - first knockdown versus Marciano
