To shake things up I decided to add a few boxers to my universe from the modern Post-1960 era. Chose them at random so curious to see how they perform against 1890s era prize fighters. Orlin Norris, Corrie Sanders, Lionel Butler, Frans Botha, and Ray Mercer. Then I tossed in Joe Beckett as well. I'm thinking these guys are likely more highly rated than the majority of early Glove Era pugs.

None of my existing boxers have fought enough to be ranked yet, but they are close.

I've been restricting fights by region for the most part. North Americans fight each other as would be the case back then. Same for Europe. Australians & New Zealanders battle amongst themselves as well as with South Afrikanners. No aircraft around yet so long distance travel restricted to steamships. Once I have world-ranked boxers They will tour other regions. [I did have two fights in Hawaii between an Aussie and a Yank, and one between a Canuck and a Limey in Halifax, NS.]
