I honestly believe fighters like Robinson + Louis (Not Ali before anyone mentions him) genuinely fought any and everyone they could providing the cash was there because they fought with pride, for a purpose, the make a point and stand on their own two feet in a persecuted world. .
I wish I could agree, but I can't. He ducked Burley for sure, but he also failed to fight Cocoa Kid, Holman Williams, Lloyd Marshall, Jack Chase...he also missed out on Archie Moore and Ezzard Charles.
