Re: The Transnational Boxing Rankings
Holmes never faced the next best when the throne was empty. He never faced the Ring-ranked #1 contender during his reign. He's another example of the premeire heavyweight of his time who failed to do what had to be done to take the throne. And though I haven't thoroughly researched the whys and the wherefores, something tells me that Don King is to blame. And so isn't Holmes for allowing that cad to live in his ear.
This, mind you, is according to my own historical research. It is not the position of the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board, which looks ahead.
