I think that Hart's win over Johnson trumps Witherspoons loss to Holmes.

Let's say Witherspoon gets the nod, and then goes on to beat Tillis, Page, and then lose to Thomas (that's at least two fighters who Holmes wouldn't touch at that time).
Or maybe he beats Holmes in a rematch.

He aint losing to Tommy Burns.
There are a lot of assumptions there.

Jeffries resume dosn't rely on assumptions because he prety much cleaned out the era.

Frankly I would be amazed if you had any confidence in Witherspoon beating Jeffries head to head as well.
