Default Carpentier draws color line

Interesting. Obviously he didn't stick with it. Makes one wonder if Jeffries would have stepped over the line as well had he stayed in the game longer and had the right monetary incentives:

In my experience, even the fighters who did not intend to draw the colour line, said that they would to keep certain elements happy. Pretty much everybody would break the colour line, if a black contender barred their way to a title shot.

Makes you wonder if they would be so quick to draw the line if the coloured boys had been crap.
They would probably have been queuing up to knock them over.

Strange ..... just 5 days after the date of this article, Carpentier fought a black fighter (George Gunther).

I honestly think that certain fighters would have drawn the colour line, even if the leading black contenders had been cr4p.

For example it is plausible that Jeffries might have thought that Jack Johnson was better swerved, but was he realy afraid of Denver Ed Martin or Frank Childs, or George Byers?
