Tiger Jones defeated Robinson, Giardello, and Gavilan. Randy Sandy ended his career going 5-20-1, but during that run defeated Dick 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.
excellent points, i now know he had not been inducted yet... blame it on my a.d.d. for lack of seeing the difference of demarco and demicco
