A ridiculous viewpoint
Anyway maybe Jeffries was Johnson's best win
The only viewpoint provable by empirical evidence. I can sit around all day and say I am at my peak and can run a 10 flat 100 meters, but until I do so, it is all so much hot air.
Leonard's best victories were Duran and Hearns.
So, Johnson's great legacy is based on beating a 6 year retired boxer turned Alfalfa farmer who had zero tune-ups before fighting for the world championship? This is better than beating Langford, McVea and Jeanette? You mustn't think much of them.
