Why would that be?

Hart had just drawn with 6-3-2 John Wille and was described as "lucky to get the decision" he had recently drawn with Gardner whom Johnson had outclassed, and previously been beaten by Gardner.

A couple of months into 1905 Hart was the beneficiary of a robbery decision over Sandy Ferguson, who knocked him down, and beat the snot out of him,only to have the referee give as his excuse for awarding the decision to Hart,he did most of the leading,sound familiar?

Johnson toyed with Ferguson 5 times, Ferguson fouling out in their last encounter
