Again, Johnson, like so many fighters before and after him, said many ridiculous things and some very insightful things.

I am more concerned with his best victory rather than how his physique flattered the camera. It is conceivable that a "prime" Johnson in fact weight 185 pounds, as he did versus Sam Langford, the middleweight who was the best fighter he ever beat.
