'That' Dempsey had a ridiculous level of pace and hand/footspeed that would seriously scare Tunney......and if Jack did manage to knock Gene down (hardly a rash assertion considering the 1927 rematch!) than Dempsey would simply stand over Gene and bludgeon him the moment he tried to repeatedly stand up!!!

Great insight as always sugar J
Cheers bud.....
