That's why I changed it to a win for Cline. I can't find a single NY paper that gave the decision to Johnson. It's Cline almost all the way, with a couple papers calling it a draw.

The Black NY papers like the New York Age are ridiculously slanted towards any and every Black fighter. I find the Pittsburgh Courier and Baltimore Afro-American to be much more balanced publications (haven't perused the Chicago Defender as much). Has that been your experience as well?
