I am not denigrating Johnson for beating the Langford like a redheaded stepchild. Kudo's for him. However, for me, it is not the shining moment on a great resume when a legit heavyweight takes out a middleweight.
Liston's best win didn't even weight 200 pounds... and this is suppose to be impressive? How many HOF did Liston beat please? That comparison should go well..
