Two points :
1-As I threaded, Britton in his 3rd bout was stopped in 1905 as a prelim...
2- When the great [as great as Robinson LW] floored Jack Britton in 1922
Jack Britton was THIRTY SEVEN years old at that time...Ancient !.
3- I have posted many times that Billy Graham who as a boy saw many times in the NY area, had an iron chin...No doubt, but Billy had but 126

216 fights without being stopped, so I named Jack Britton...Longevity

Britton also stopped Ted Kid Lewis once in their series , not an easy thing to do.
