Not his fault at all.
But he struggled with a couple of them, quite severely, when he seemed to have all the advantages.
make people question this supposed "reign of dominance", but apparently not.
Fitz, Corbett, & Sharkey were viewed as the best around by a huge consensus.
And can anyone
explain how and why Corbett - who hadn't won a fight in 6 years, and had been KO'd and beaten up in the mean time - managed to be viewed in such a way ?
It beggar's belief.
What's worse is that Jeffries had a really hard time putting him away.
