It is not enough just to look at boxrec. You have to look at how certain fights were perceived at the time, and it is oftne not as you would expect.
I agree context is massively important, so putting the Levinsky victory into the correct context indicates he fought a man who Greb just defeated (something he did during his career apparently)
