Just how far could he have gone, in your opinion?

I forget who I saw him fight. Think it was Mims... But god, Carter was huge. The back muscles he had were just... wow. Man was one of the most muscular boxers I've ever seen. Insane.

Only man ever to KO Griffith too, so you'd imagine he had some sickening power.

Only stopped once on a cut, despite having a dozen losses throughout his short career. Was he a durable guy?

What did he have going for him exactly?
My thoughts about him are that he was exciting, but he was no more than a journeyman at best.
