    Who would win? Rocky Marciano or Jack Dempsey and what advantages do they have over each other such as, power, height, weight, style, etc.

    Demspey has more advantage (speed, size and wasn't a cut prone).
    Rocky has better stamina. I think both had great power, toughness and strong chins but i lean towards Dempsey by mid TKO in a war.

    That’s bang on, what a fight that would be.

    Marciano for me, but that would be brutal war.

    Hands down 50/50. I wouldn't bet on anybody. But for sure it would be brutal a.f.!!!!

    Very uncertain.
    Dempsey was the best boxer of all time ... in the first round. He
    he surpasses Marciano in speed, mobility, intensity. But Marciano surpasses Dempsey in chin and stamina.
    Dempsey wins if he knocks out or injures Marciano in the early rounds. In a battle of usury, Marciano wins.
    I bet on Marciano, but no one can say for sure the winner.

    I think Marcianos stamina is the key. Dempsey wasn’t the best stamina wise. They would be trading heavily the first few rounds though.

    Thank you very much for that I’ve been looking for a while, pretty cool game, don’t know how accurate I could have been, but I wish they had stuff like that nowadays

    Thank you, that is a response I’ve been looking for, I like how you payed out the benefits and doubts, I always see people say Dempsey because of his jab or something and people don’t lay everything out so you can really see what they had against each other, thanks!

    Yeah on both sides probably gushing blood and maybe some broken noses with the history of beatings those fighters gave
