    No he didnt Johnson was a better contender than either a washed up Corbett ,Finnegan, or Munroe.
    Why should Jeffries defend against 9 fight McVey who had only lost to Johnson? Well he had no problem defending against 9 fight Munroe did he! He was guaranteed a good purse to fight McVey but chose to fight a 3rd rater in Munroe and got a poor gate.
    Valdes was eliminated by Archie Moore whom Marciano fought, Patterson wasn't even a ranked heavy when Marciano retired, bad comparison. He weighed 175lbs when Marciano had his last fight against Moore.

    How do you know Martin wasn't better than Ruhlin and Sharkey neither of them would give him a chance to find out!
    Too many excuses!

    Tonto62 has no logic. Er, Mcvey and he hate white heavyweights in general have have no less than 100 points against them.. Here's what I don't understand by his " logic ". He'll say Jeffries opponents and Mariano were too small, YET Jack Johnson and Jack Dempsey were stopped by sub 200 pound men. Rocky and Jeffries never lost to a man below 200 pounds.

    So much for his size theory and cherry picking on the topic. In truth Jeffries larger opponents lasted few rounds on general.

    I never mentioned any opponent of either as being too small.
    I simply pointed out, when another poster remarked that both men fought small opponents,that Jeffries had very significant weight advantages over his small opponents whereas Marciano was the same size or smaller than his . It's not my fault if you are unable to follow conversations.
    What proof have you that I hate white heavyweights in general? What leads you to this opinion?
    Favourite white heavyweights of mine are Dempsey,Quarry,Renault,Miske,Brennan,Coetzee,Cooney.

    You're the one who has a problem with color ,and its well documented here!
