Why exactly is Joe Kennedy unworthy of a title shot?
while Frank Childs was?
Kennedy drew with Childs, drew twice with Griffin, and defeated Ruhlin, probably a bigger heavyweight name than anyone Childs defeated.
Kennedy was also about 6' 2" and 195 lbs, much bigger than Childs.
Joe Kennedy has better credentials than quite a few guys who got shots at the title over the years.
