Default Question about Dempsey

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdE2esUQzd4[/ame]

Can someone tell me who is Dempsey fighting at the starting mark of 3:17 ?

Big guy with good athleticism and a jab.

I must say I don't know, but it does show that a solid jab and good foot movement could neutralise Dempsey, as Tunney demonstred himself in their 2 fights.

Dempsey doesn't look out of it though in the footage, he's dodging most of the shots, the jabs, and he manages to get his shots in

As the resident Dempsey scholar, idolizer and gospelizer, I will inform you that it's Bill Tate.

That is Dempsey sparring Big Bill Tate at Maumee Bay in 1919 while in training for Jess Willard.
