As for Jimmy Braddock, I think journeyman is an accurate description, even though he was champ.
#1 at LHW...Heavyweight Champion of the world...an astonishing performance v Joe Louis...wins over Farr, Baer, John Henry Lewis...calling him a jounreyman seems a really odd thing to do to me.

Of course he lost fights. He also reached the absolute pinnacle of professional sports and was knocked of that perch by arugably the best practitioner of that profession ever to grace the weight class.
