You are right I have made an assumption that many people agree with my particular opinion but I am of that impression. Dont get me wrong I think there are some fantastic boxers from that era.
The problem is their achievements often have to be put in perspective. I dont claim to be the best most versed in that particular era of boxing though it is certainly one that interests me greatly.
The style and rules of boxing were completely different are you telling me the upright range based stance many adopted in that era was the most effective? i am of the opinion that as with any sport boxing as a style from a technical standpoint began to reach its golden era in the 20's.
