Seriously though this fight would never happen because Johnson had a reputation of dodging black fighters, he wouldn't fight little bitty Sam Langford from Canada at 5'7 and he is 6'1 I doubt he is going to give a shot to a hulking monster like Liston.

You are quite right, Johnson never fought a black fighter. guy is just suntanned.Notice how small he is too.

This guy is tanned too.
And this one.

And this one.
Him too.

ps. Johnson was 6'' .25"
