Re: sonny liston vs jack johnson.....
Battling Jim SCHOOLING Johnson.. Seamus you jest... Please quote any primary source that say this ro anything like this. A plodding big spoiler would never school johnson.. if anything he did just as he usually did.. Spoil.
Johnson beat hart by most accounts I've read and certainly would've beat hart by today's standards. So there is really nothing left to say on this matter. Did he knock him out no.. but not many did.
O'brien.. are we really talking about a 6 round fight in which Johnson was out partying nad drinking the night before and still got the nod on some people cards and was barely trying? Sorry, I don't know how that is proof of Johnson's lack of power.
