When Johnson was genuinely uncomfortable in a fight he did something about it. The subjective waltz's that were the Hart, O' Brien and Jim Johnson bouts don't fit the said criteria.
Not quick enough to catch an old, shopworn O'Brien with any effectiveness, not strong enough to dissuade Hart, not uncomfortable enough to do something about Battling Jim Johnson...

Still, this would be a great match-up.
