In fact apart from a highly dubious decision against him in the Hart fight,and a debatable dsq to Jeannette ,whom he mastered many tines. Johnson went nearly 15 years without a defeat.

I haven't made a pick in this apples /oranges argument. But I think Johnson is being somewhat short -changed.
Exactly how much credence does Johnson receive, as a heavyweight, for beating Gardner? And what credence does he get for beating the single worst fighter to ever vie for a title in Ross? Why doe you even list Ross?
