If Langford weighs in as light heavy but his opponent is over the heavyweight limit that is not okay? This is the most ridiculous part of the criteria, imo. The rest are just little inconsistencies which dont really matter too much one way or the other.
Although it is a moot point anyway. because Langford was never really a light heavy, even under your criteria. At best he has a handful of wins, against some good but nothing overly special opponents. Yet this is going to place him in the top 20 of all time without relying overly on head to head abilities.
By the way, i hadnt realised that Jim Flynn was fighting at such a low weight after the Johnson fight where he weighed over 175. Quite interesting actually.
lesnevich v bivins, do you call that a lhw fight or a hw fight?
if one is over 190 they're undoubtedly engaged in a hw fight, nothing about it being o.k. it's about what division i classify the fight as being in.
nothing inconsistent about it.
well by my criteria he clearly was, otherwise i wouldn't rank him number 15.
then research the era better than you have done.
