yes the public and jack solomons were thirsty for making up for lost time after the war. Fights were made in a hurry, solomons wanted to strike while the iron was hot and deliver what the public wanted ASAP. It wasnt good on the careers of mills and wood****, though wood**** and baksi posibly earned just as well as genuine champions.
