Default Roscoe Toles.How Good Was He?

I see this man was rated
No 9 1937
No 8 1938
No 9 1939

No 10 1941
No 4 1941

He beat
Lee Q Murray
Nate Bolden
Arturo Godoy x5
Buddy Walker
Patsy Perroni
Gus Dorazio
Alberto Lovel
Steve Dudas
Isidoro Gastanaga
Gunner Barlund
Jack Trammel
Charley Berlanger
Toles spent 1941-1943 fighting in South America, then had a lengthy hiatus returning to the ring in 1947,[War Service]?
He appears to have been good enough to have been among Louis's " Bum Of The Month ",challengers,was it just his colour that prevented him getting a title shot?
Perhaps other posters may bring me up to date here? Suzie?

Louis did fight Toles in an unofficial bout early on. He may have fit in there with Louis's challengers but we must agree that he did not do anything exceptional to earn a title shot. An impressive heavyweight career nonetheless against mainly top opposition and he beat Arturo Godoy a number of times.

Louis won by KO in 6. I do not know why it is not listed on his official record. I guess it was deemed as an exhibition.
