Re: Would this be as important as Foreman's victory over Moorer?
Does every undefeated fighter with padded record deserve a title shot at the champion (not even an eliminator)?
Two ranked opponents, and he struggled with Peralta. First opponent was 2.5 years and the other 1.5 years before he met Frazier. That was a disgrace.
Second title. Regardless that he won the title, he simply didn't deserve a title fight, not a single victory over ranked opponent. Similar to how Norton defeated Ali the 1st time, also without a single meaningful win on his record.
