Who knows. A peaking, unharmed (he took an astonishing beating v Papke) Ketchel might have got the job done.
I like to think he would have. He gave Johnson a decent fight and the size difference between him and Burns is nothing compared to him and Johnson. I'd lay a few quid on Ketchel for this one
