Ketchel was one of the best fighters around at the turn of the century. He got hammered by Jack Johnson though. Johnson was beating everyone then (I believe he fought Ketchel in 1909). James Jeffries came out of retirement to fight Johnson and he was heavily favored (mostly because he was white and there was a lot of disdain for a black boxer holding the heavyweight belt). He too was beat badly by Johnson though. Incredible cards, congrats.
