Default Re: Peter Maher In The Modern HW Scene

Boilermaker, excellent summing up, just one clarification Maher was not knocked down or ko'd by Jackson, he just quit after two rounds when a virtual amature against the best fighter in the world at that time in Jackson, he was simply outclassed.
One other point in Maher's favor no early fighter matched as many of the top blacks as he did. He beat Godfrey, Craig, CC Smith, Klondike, Harris, Stevenson, Butler, Ike Hayes etc and was matched at various times with Armstrong and Childs.
