and earning a #3 Light-Middleweight ranking.

But the chances of landing a World Light-Middleweight bout with WBA Champion - Davey Moore
or WBC Champion - Wilfred Benitez were 'slim-to-none' for the 28 year-old southpaw, as he was
deemed 'too dangerous'.

Not 2 dangerous , just not a big enough paynight 4 Moore .
As 4 Benitez , it is more possible , but he 2 was a superstar by then and had much bigger money 2 make .
