He would have been a top contender by his early to mid 20s (as he was in the 30s) and if it all whent arse over tits he would just win the title in his late 30s when the top contenders were too old as he did in his own era.
He would have fought for the title no question. Again probably early in his career at an age he was in the late 30s.
When his hands broke he would just have taken six months off for them to heal and continued to drink champagne. He would never have been broken down to journeyman level as he was in his own era.
