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.
So now you're automatically at your peak when you pull off your best win, I suppose Calzaghe was peak against Hopkins/Kessler then at the age of 37? Was Hopkins at his peak against Pavlik and Tarver too? Was Leonard in 1987?

A ridiculous viewpoint

Anyway maybe Jeffries was Johnson's best win
