Jorfe had a smooth, but powerful style. He was an artist in the ring, could take a punch, and had speed.

Even Nat Fleischer who was known to be partial to fighters pre 1960 said Jofre was as good as any bantam he has ever seen!

If Eder had a draw back his life style ( he was a vegetarian ) hurt him a bit, and he could over comit a tad to his punches. Jofre had trouble making weight for both Harda fights. Harda won both of them, and might have exposed a stylistic flaw in Jorfe.

I think the great boxer -punchers like Jorfe always have trouble with the super durable great swarmers. Super durable great swarmers are extremely rare.

I rate Jorfe #1 at Bantam.
