You miss the point entirely.I'm not trying to build them up as good as Langford etc.
I'm implying that they were at least as deserving of title shots as Finnegan ,Munroe, Kennedy and Corbett ,and in most cases more deserving.
The most credible challenger that Jeffries failed to meet in the early part of his title reign, is probably Kid McCoy.
There was even talk about bringing Charlie Mitchell out of retirment to face him.
