Default Re: Prime James J. Jeffries vs Jack Johnson

For some reason Johnson seemed to loose fights he was capable of winning. The first Kondike fight comes to mind. Johnson knocked him down in the first round and only the bell saved him.

This basically means Johnson should have been able to win this fight.

I also think being black probably meant that close fights went to his white opponents regardless of who actually should have won but the flip side of that is that Johnson knew that and should have fought accordingly.
