    Thoughts?

    I've always been impressed by Dempsey's panther-like boxing style in this bout.

    Atleast on film, I think it's easilly the best version of Dempsey.

    I agree, he looks very good against Gibbons and Brennan but this is his peak as far as footage goes. Such a shame that we don't have more 1918-19 Dempsey.

    Oh how I could gush about this fight, one of my favorites

    But lemme just point out how light Dempsey is on his feet, bouncing around and controlling distance very well, good walk aways. Walcott-esk. The left hook that started this avalanche was picture perfect as well.
