1. I don't think he beat Tony DeMarco. He beat someone named Tony DeMicco.

2. He seems to me to be a tough, but fairly ordinary contender. He did beat LaMotta, Williams, and Zivic, and drew Robinson, but a whole lot of contenders did about as well without being outstanding. Tiger Jones defeated Robinson, Giardello, and Gavilan. Randy Sandy ended his career going 5-20-1, but during that run defeated **** Tiger and Emile Griffith.

3. How is he better than contemporaries, such as George Abrams. Abrams defeated Teddy Yarosz, Lou Brouillard, and Billy Soose, drew with Charley Burley, and lost a very disputed decision to Robinson.
