Default On willie Pep, Sandy Saddler,Henry Armstrong

Seeing Willie Pep and Sandy Saddler in their primes, one thought always
occurs to me. Great as these two featherweight were, they NEVER
challenged a Beau Jack or Ike Williams for a match as they KNEW better, but when Henry Armstrong was featherweight champion he would have DEMANDED a bout with these two bigger men.
There-on lies the difference between a Pep and Saddler and the immortal
Hammerin Hank...What say you ?
