Ike Williams

Bob Montgomery
Willie Joyce
Sammy Angott
All in their primes, fighting each other often, Title fights 15 rounds...
But the fight I remember best was when the ill-fated Al [bummy] Davis
flattened the 8-1 favorite Bob Montgomery in the very first round with
tremendous left hooks...I miss those long ago days. Yessir...
I was just jokin' either way. I do however think that Montgomery beat Williams when both were closest to their primes, although that may be debatable. I also wouldn't favor Montgomery over Armstrong.....although not having your benifit of seeing him first hand (coupled w/ no known footage) it is a major speculation on my part.

I also think I would favor Armstrong over Williams
