Completely different situation.
Moore already had a solid resume at the weight and would go on to do a hell of a lot more in the coming years. He was not a faded ex champ.
Ezzard beat all the best light heavies of the day...Lesnevich, Maxim and Moore pretty much between them held the title for 15 years. Charles beat them all, Maxim and Moore multiple times, proving he was the man of the division whilst they shared it.
Lloyd Marshall and Jimmy Bivins were as good if not better then any champ at the time they were fighting but were never given a shot to prove it. Charles beat them both several times.
The fact he never held a belt is really irrelevant.
