Default Burley VS heavyweights

Can someone knowledgeable enough clear up the air about Charley Burley apparently regularly taking on heavyweights.

How many did he really fight ?
Who were they ?
How good were they ?
Is the fact that he took on those heavyweights is now loosely overrated/underrated ?

He took on two, only one of which was a HW by modern standards.

in Britain this was probably more expect than anywhere else in the Boxing world during the 1920s, 30s and 40s.

Top British middleweights and L-HWs repeatedly stretched themselves against Top HWs.
