You haven't proved McLarnin's inconsistency at all aside from simply making the statement. Any fighter that has ever fought would take a few losses against that caliber of opposition. Barney Ross and Tony Canzoneri are both probably top 20 ATG's in their own rights (Ross arguably top 10) and McLarnin faced both men multiple times. Of course he's going to rack up a couple of losses in the process. The bottom line is, he was always able to come back from adversity to conquer his foes in rematches, no matter what the caliber of opponent or the manner in which he was defeated in the first bout.
Again, your arguments don't hold water. You need to re-think your stance.
You need to rethin your stance. Jimmy was inconsistet FACT! His wins over Villa and Leonard should mean to much either as Leonard was shot and Villa was ill.
He did have some great wins, but most of his wins, that fighter also beat him.
You ever laced on a glove? and actually boxed in a ring?
