Re: Stanley Ketchel VS Gerald McClellan
Who the hell cares how many black fighters Ketchel faced. How many Irish or Jewish fighters did McClellan face?
As for boxing being in its infancy, it had actually been around in one form or another since the early 1700's. Do you really think that these skills suddenly came into existence in your lifetime? When a fight can go 20, 30, 50 rounds and last most of the day, you develop different skills. Don't knock it till you've tried it.
You did get one thing right though. Since there's little film of Ketchel, no one can really say whether he beats McClellan or not.
