Default Roy Jones Jr vs Jack Dempsey

Given the Marciano poll I thought I'd ask about a fighter who is similar in size and (imo) a level below the Rock.

Given prime versions of the two 180+ fighters, who emerges the victor here?

Roy was regarded as the best at this weight during his day as was jack.

It's a perfectly valid matchup and one which can be debated either way in my opinion.

Dempsey couldn't box his way out of a paper bag. He has little more than a puncher's chance.

Roy Jones could easily do what Tunney did, except at a higher level, with far greater speed and unorthodoxy.

Jones wide UD or maybe by KO if Dempsey gets reckless.

For me Jones is no1 H2H all time under 190lbs

fair point but that was a waaaaay past prime dempsey. what about the dempsey of fulton (who we have no footage of) or willard (who would NOT be allowed to stand over an opponent and drill him on his knees)?

Hi, i'm new here .. Just found this site and this forum is fantastic .. I'm pretty surprised everyone is going for Roy in this fight as Jack Dempsey is a formidable opponent .. Roy isnt going to dent Jack with anything and Jack is going to make him work in every round, I'm taking Dempsey to land something big in rds 4 - 6 and then it could be goodnight Roy Jones Jr. Remember, Roy has to work all night, Jack just has to land something. Roy could make him look pretty silly in the opening salvo's though ..

btw: i think it would be best to judge each man by their styles on film, not merely reputation. feel it would make a bit of an objective and justifiable analysis

Tunney gets such a raw deal over the 'Dempsey was past his prime' argument .. Tunney would have given Dempsey a tough fight even when Dempsey was in his 'prime', just like Holyfield would have given a prime Tyson trouble. Tunney after all, was the guy who beat Greb 3 times out of 5, and that is an achievement which will never be forgotten in the history of Boxing

the idea that "one punch" is all it took to take out jones is foolish. dempsey was a great hitter and a better finisher. his aggression was his best trait and i don't see him knocking jones out by just landing...he'd have to corner him and drill him again and again. i'm not saying he doesn't but a glancing blow, or a single punch, isn't doing the trick. to imply that jones crumbles the moment an opponent lands is a disservice to him

Didn't Dempsey get knocked out in the first round by a bum who was a natural light heavy or SMW? But Jones couldn't dent him?
