Why not for Marshall? He beat Charles himself at LHW, aswell as Joey Maxim and proved he has legit power at the weight.
Smith's only regards are at LHW. His best win is at LHW but knocking out Harold Johnson in 2 rounds. And despite losing most of his big fights he showed that he was a legit top contender in a lot of those losing battles and had some strong wins along the way.
Just never really thought Marshall was as good at 175 from 160, which is a big jump in that era. His record shows it.
They are about the level of Arizimendi/Wright, two guys Armstrong waxed in his 2 year run. Cerefino Garcia also waxed Marshall 2 times after Armstrong beat him.
