Doing a book on Marvin, even. Good. More attention needs to be focused on these forgotten champs. I have heard that there are some who do not consider him or Burns to be "linear" b/c Jeffries came back. This, I think, is a spurious contention, frankly. These guys won the title fair and square and should be remembered.
