If you truly believe Munroe merited a title shot, we are not only on different plains of thought ,we are on different planets, in different universes.
Of course hindsight is a wonderful thing.
Munro had put together a winning streak that included wins over Maher, Limerick and Sharkey. We know that Maher and Sharkey were shot, but they were still name fighters. We know that Limerick turned out to be a flash in the pan, but it was not obvious at the time.
Combined with his talent for self promotion, it is not hard to understand how some people saw Munro as a contender on the way up.
