    I'd want the physique that gave the most speed and power, none of this pretty boy nonsense.

    I disagree, you need a special physique to be able to knock out much bigger top-level boxers the way Dempsey did. I'm pretty sure Margarito, Mayweather, or RJJ couldn't do it.

    Maybe you are judging on looks? But that's personal opinion. For sure, the "average joe" or even average gym rat looks in worse shape than Dempsey in his prime did.

    Thats exactly what were judging on, physique/build=how you look, not how you perform, were not saying dempsey could fight, or was not fit, but he he has a pretty average body, at least by todays standards.

    So people with a better looking physique are more likely to knock out heavier people? :huh

    If that's how it works this guy could knock any boxer the **** out then -

    All I said was two facts. Dempsey has a far better physique than the average joe; and his physique (i.e. body structure - obviously not his looks) allowed him to hit extremely hard.

    If you're talking pure visual appearance then that's a matter of opinion, but personally I'd still rather have a physique that looked like Dempsey than most of the guys listed on this thread. And so apparently would the numerous virgins and floozies that the Manassa Mauler "broke in" before he became a top-notch prizefighter :D

    But hey, if guys wanna look like Tyson and end up with chicks like Robin Givens, more power to them!

    Ok in that case it's just a different definition of physique to what I was thinking of. IMO it's not just looks alone, but also power, strength, size etc.

    In any case, personally I prefer to look lean and trim and more natural, rather than bulked up with huge pecs, or getting a 6 pack at the cost of a hollow, concave-looking mid-section etc. So I prefer the Dempsey or Ali look over the Tyson or Margarito look.

    Physique is someone's build, how they look. You cannot rate somebodies strength, power, speed, whatever just by looking at them.

    Definition -

    phy.sique - noun
    Physical or bodily structure, appearance or development: The physique of an athlete.
