Default Re: mark johnson :why is he in the HOF ?

By Lem Satterfield: "If Johnson's resume was largely devoid of star names, it was because standout fighters of the day, from 108 to 115 pounds, such as Johnny Tapia, Danny Romero, Michael Carbajal and Ricardo Lopez are widely considered to have avoided him."

I remember the 90s pretty well, and I remember none of the top guys wanting to fight Johnson. Folks today can engage in revisionist history, but some of us remember.

He was the first African American flyweight champion, too.
