In fact you have scored something of an own goal, because Johnson actualy fought a lot more guys who weighed more than 200lbs.

We could compare the six best fighters over 200lbs that Johnson beat to the six best that Liston beat.

Liston:

Machen
Besmanoff
Valdes
Williams
Bethea

and if you spot him a pound, you can include Folley

Johnson:

Moran
The green as a shoot McVea
The shot, pathetic Jeffries, after 5 years of retirement

I don't think Ed Martin or Sandy Ferguson were 200 against Johnson.

Yeah, why don't you finish the Johnson list... It is a little less than awe-inspiring.
