      I would have to say Dempsey would win this one.

      Harry Wills is one of great heavyweights of his era, a man who could punch and had decent overall boxing skill. But he was a bit slow, some say too slow, to keep up with even a slightly-past-his-prime Dempsey.

      Dempsey had always maintained that he wanted to fight Wills "badly" because "It would have been an easy fight. I was too fast for him. It would have been an easy KO" and I would have to agree. The Brown Panther would have been overwhelmed much the way big guys like Luis Angel Firpo and Jess Willard were. KO Early to mid rounds for Jack.

      I think Wills would have taken Dempsey, I always though Jack ducked the best fighters of his era, and Wills was one fighter Dempsey wanted no part of, the whole blacklisting aspect stains boxing history during Dempsey’s era and I find it distasteful just discussing it.
