That is Victor he scaled 198lbs for his bout with Johnson who at 211lbs , just 3 months after beating Burns at 192lbs, must have been pretty fat. Johnson dropped him with the first punch he threw, a stiff left to the stomach, after that he just went through the motions for the remainder of the 6 rds, allowing Vic to last the route.
