Default Joe Brown vs Eddie Perkins

Any thoughts on this fantasy fight? The sad thing is this classic should have been made but Brown's handlers steered clear of Perkins who was the quintessential high risk-no reward proposition.

I don't honestly know much about Brown but I love to learn more as he seems like a fascinating character in and out of the ring.

Perkins is a legend and thankfully a recent inductee to the IBHOF. Russell Peltz compared Perkins to a lightweight Harold Johnson and that's spot on the money. Could this legend have beaten 'Old Bones'?

I believe perkins would have nipped Old Bones much like Carlos Ortiz eventually did. perkins has got my total respect as a fighter. he was as crafty as they came, and I like Brown too.
