Sure. How about all the other great fighters my point applies for, then?

Charles was pretty consistet and should of been the LHW champ for years. He was more consistet than Jimmy and was the better fighter!
Charles lost a higher percentage of his fights than McLarnin, which makes him less consistent. And believe it or not, McLarnin in his prime was actually facing and beating a higher level of opposition consistently than Charles, or pretty much any fighter I can think of, for that matter. Charles's edge in the resume department is due to his larger number of fights, nothing more.

You need to re-think your stance on McLarnin.
