I have only one concern regarding the ratings of Joe Palooka and Big Ben Bolt. In both comic strips they seem to emulate John L. Sullivan and refuse to box any black fighters. As a result could their ratings be a little inflated? As a little boy I remember reading a comic book where Bolt loses his title in a 15 rd decision to a boxer who looks a lot like Jack Dempsey. Does anyone have any details regarding this and if so did they have a rematch?
