and that's so racial and pathetic.
I'll play along. whites are smarter and are made to actually STUDY in school so they don't have time to focus exclusively on athletics, it's called a 'back up plan in case I don't make it to the pro level in sports'. don't have scientific evidence to back up this claim, but I know I'm not alone in this opinion.
as for your earlier 'he didn't fight top black fighters'
jackson was at his peak around fitzsimmons prime, fitz said somewhere that jackson was 'the daddy of them all' so he pretty much admits he'd lose to him
where are the other top black fighters from 1890 to 1898? nowhere near enough prominence for us to remember, mayber denver ed martin then who?
fitzsimmons would've most likely beaten the third raters you seem to think everyone was afraid.
