Default Thoughts on Charles (Bud) Taylor?

What are your thoughts on Bud Taylor? Underrated? Forgotten? Greatest Bantamweight of the '20's?


[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


Name: Bud Taylor
Alias: Blonde Terror of Terre Haute
Record: (W) 118 (L) 32 (D) 15



Notable wins:
  • Memphis Pal Moore
  • Pancho Villa (No. 1 Flyweight and Champion)
  • Abe Goldstein 3x (First fight: Goldstein entered year as the No. 2 Bantamweight)
  • Jimmy McLarnin 2x (First fight: McLarnin, No. 3 Featherweight) (The first 2 losses of McLarnin's career)
  • Bushy Graham (No. 2 Bantamweight)
  • Johnny Brown
  • Tommy Ryan 3x (Second fight: Ryan, No. 15 Bantamweight)
  • Tony Canzoneri (Entered year as No. 2 Bantamweight)
  • Johnny Farr
  • Young Nationalista (No. 10 Bantamweight)
  • Chick Suggs (No. 1 Bantamweight 2 years earlier)
  • Johnny Farr
  • Santiago Zorrilla 3x (First fight: No. 3 Featherweight)
  • Battling Battalino (No. 1 Featherweight)


Talk about scalps! And all within 4-6 years. I never see this man even considered for top 10 or 20 Bantamweights. Let alone, P4P lists.

Thoughts?

Another thing, Bud Taylor never stopped fighting top competition. From flyweight up to Super Featherweight and his last two bouts against Massey (No. 4 SFW) and the No. 1 SFW Benny Bass.

Other notable opponents: Pal Moore, Villa, Graham, McLarnin, Goldstein, Canzoneri, Zorrilla, Al Singer, Mastro, Battalino, Fidel LaBarba, Benny Bass, Lew Massey.
