Take your tongue out of Jeffries ****.
He should have rematched John Finnegan who had avenged his Cavanaugh loss and had gone undefeated since his unsuccessful title shot.
Other Options were
Jack Johnson who was not a top 10 fighter.
Or Joe Choynski who had just drawn with Jeffries and was about to KO Johnson
or John L Sullivan who was calling out Jeffries for a unification bout and had just KOd McCormack?
or Hank Griffin, who had just beaten Jack Munroe?
