Default Lew Tendler

When people make comparsions to Benny Leonard & other boxers in head to head match ups and say they are not impresed by the fotage they have sean of Leonard most likely they have seen Leonards first match with Lew Tendler. Leonard might look as good as advertised well that is because Tendler was also an exlent boxer himself. One of the most underated boxers in history Not because Leonard was lacking anything.
I would rank him as the 3rd best Jewish boxer after Leonard and Barney Ross.

I'll never understand why people aren't impressed with Leonard in that footage. He always looked damn good to me.

And yes, Tendler was a heck of a fighter himself, one of the best never to win a title.

I belive had there been no Benny, Tendler would have held the title for years.

Or have been that era's best lightweight.

Either way, I am impress with both fighters in that 12 round footage.

I seen the complete 12 round fight with Benny.

It shows a lot more detail imo on there tactics than a few min highlights.

Not to go off topic but where would rate Mendoza compared to Lewis and Berg?
