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

Did Arbachakov, Sasakul, Veeraphol and Wonjongkam duck him? Why didn't Johnson go over to Asia to take on the best guys? Some of those guys mentioned above were the standout guys of the day because The Ring always gave precedence to the Westerners (Austin?!) at that time when the titles weren't being unified (of course a common theme from the 80s onwards especially in the midget classes)

Anyway, he was the first African American flyweight titlist. All this aside in terms of how he should be ranked for achievement, a brilliant fighter and I'll take him over Lopez every day of the week.
