Default Johnson Hot On Jeffries Trail In 1904

Here is a link showing Jack Johnson challenging Jeffries in 1904.

Johnson had just kod Denver Ed Martin so completely there were fears he had killed him.

The ko blow is described as lifting Martin ", two feet in the air ". Johnson is referred to as "the only logical candidate for the championship".
