Default michael jordan of boxing

there's only one, and it's 1919 jack dempsey. He was the michael jordan of boxing and everyone who saw him never forgot it. louis had nothing on him, neither did ray. When the writers who saw him died, so did his legend. The video survives but it can't surpass modern bias and ignorance.

edit - to be fair, if you factor in CAREER and not just how they were as a fighter at their best, I'd have to say it's joe louis.

That would be Ali since he is the only Boxer who is one the greatest athletes of all time, just like Jordan is the only basketball player.

Writer's like Nat Fleischer who rated him behind Jack Johnson, Jim Jeffries, and Bob Fitzsimmons? Since modern bias and ignorance could not apply to him, then what was it?

Ali was bigger than MJ.

If anything, Jordan is the Ali of basketball, not vice versa

The only thing you can disrespect mike for is playing basketball instead of boxing. Ali may have been bigger, but he wasn't better.

I agree. Ali is the most popular athlete off all time worldwide. Pele and Jordan come the closest

More importantly, dempsey was bigger than ali. I'll repeat that in case it didn't register. Dempsey was bigger than ali. He drew million dollar gates in the 20's. Do you have any idea what that means? More evidence that dempsey = jordan of boxing. One of ali's fights against sonny liston set a record for smallest attendance at a heavyweight title fight in history.
