Re: World Class "Journeyman" Fighters
Going back aways, a Journeyman was a guy who had a "Have Bag will Travel"
mentality, Experianced fodder for young prospects to gain experiance with, often travelling overseas to their backyards and at short notice, Good Journeymen could sometimes spring an upset and look forward to a return decent payday for a revenge return Tom "the Bomb" Bethea had a few notable european escapades like this.
A trailhorse was seen as similar to a journeyman, but not so willing to travel overseas, perhaps not quite having accepted the role of opponent and stepping stone.
Many a Journeyman and Trailhorse may of started off as bright prospects in their own right but Like in Life itself...for whatever reason...Ambitions remain unfulfilled.
