    Yes, he might be more skilled than some fat bums we have today, but not more skilled than Fury.

    He's more skilled than majority of top HWs we have today. Outside of Fury, who is on his level? Maybe old Povetkin, Usyk if you want to call him HW but that's probably it.

    You're probably right, but you're forgetting size matters.
    Guys like Mayweather and Pacquiao were clearly more skilled than someone like Froch, yet they stand no chance whatsoever against him.

    Louis wasn't small though, he looked fit and trim at 207 lbs.

    this is the stuff from a person who doesnt know what he is talking about . First Dempsey crouched (not tunney vs dempsey) how in the hell is tyson gonna nail a crouching fighter with jabs . I knew you were gonna go there but I am glad you typed that dumb **** out . Also Tysons lil stick n move style would make him fodder for dempsey ,If you watch jab heavy Willard vs Dempsey(willard was more skilled) what got Willard dropped and bombed on ,was him trying to jab and move left against Dempsey . Jack got inside that jab (willard helped by moving left) and jack fired a right hand to the heart (no way Tysons out of shape ass can handle explosive punches to the heart) after that right hand dempsey fires a hook to the jaw and ka boom over .Tyson Fury does not have the skillset to deal with Dempsey .Let us not forget Jack had enough power to knock you down or end the fights on the inside as in he got a lot of leverage in a range Tyson has subpar skills in . It just takes one of those times in the clinch thru the course of the fight for Jack to hurt and finish Fury. Tyson Fury has zero shot !
