how can you be number 1 if you're not the legitimate lineal champion ,and you're not fighting the top contenders of your weight class ? and on top of that, you're fighting in what is basically the minor leagues of the sub-featherweight divisions ( USA )
east asia produced 35 flyweight world champions in the last 20 years .
mark johnson faced 0 asian fighters during his flyweight reign , and beat no title holders at 112 ( former or future ) . and you don't see a problem with that ? frankly it's mind boggling that some respected websites and magazines rated him as one of the best flyweights of ALL TIME ...
and yep , the ring magazine can't be biased . we're talking about the same ring magazine that fabricated records for don king boxers back in the 70's , right ?
