If not the best it was very close to it. He had already beaten (and then drawn) with Billy Graham beforehand so I don't think he was green any longer.

His first performances against Pierre Langlois after the Gavilan fight was pretty underwhelming (thought he lost that one) but I felt he looked much better against Kid Gavilan than he did for Langlois. Might have been that he simply underrated Langlois and didn't train as hard for that one as he could have.
