Default Dempsey - Cooney short cut

Anyone out there interested in boxing trivia?
If so, who can make the shortest possible connection between two of the greatest white punchers of the 20th century: Jack Dempsey and Gerry Cooney?

(you know: Dempsey fought A, who fought B...... who fought X, who fought Cooney).

Not a bad effort - but we need something even better!

Guess you could drop Archie Moore if you want to use the computer fight between Ali and Marciano but i'd be very impressed if there are less steps than I took.

Ok i'll have another look, are you counting the Ali Marciano computer fight?

This is on the up and up... I wouldn't bother you guys with a trick question! So no computer fight is involved.

Most people would say like you, that 6 names are needed... but you can actually make the connection using only 5. Honest!
