Of the four "heirs apparent" to Sullivan's crown, he did the best against the others:



* Corbett--draw with Jackson, beat Mitchell; also beat Kilrain in a 6-rounder, for what it's worth

* Slavin--didn't beat any of the four; destroyed Kilrain and Smith, though

* Charlie Mitchell--didn't beat any of the four

* Peter Jackson--beat Slavin, drew with Corbett




Since Mitchell was past it by the time he faced Corbett, and Corbett only beat him after winning the championship anyway, Jackson has the best resume. He was the best fighter during the twilight of Sullivan's reign, while Corbett and Slavin feasted on older fighters and Mitchell mouldered.

I put him in the #16-to-#25 AT Hvywt range. Probably similar in native talent to Larry Holmes, except more suseptable to punishment. Good stamina, though.
