Bigly big Influential fight! Start of a new golden era and a breakout fight for Dempsey. Absolutely legendary. Bone breaking power, relentless aggression. Dempsey had beautiful Tyson like destruction over the big champion. Tyson even credits Dempsey and this fight as his inspiration.
Tonnes of folklore around this fight. Blistering heat, navy crowd, time keeper fucking up, managers betting, promoter was also a judge, loaded gloves. Dempsey leaving the ring early.
I found it strange the event didn't sell that well. Another one of those fight night they were lucky to be apart of.
