Roland LaStarza was a capable fighter who was a great defensive
fighter with a good jab. While he was not a big puncher, he boxed
well enough to rack up a number of wins, and some of the fighters
were of decent quality. So, I think that LaStarza could have done
okay in the Dempsey and Louis eras. Don't think that LaStarza
could have beaten either Dempsey or Louis, but he would have
been competitive against the contenders.
