A 2 round KO over Martin is nice. Martin may not have been the sturdiest guy, but his footwork was highly praised, so getting to an experienced, moble and reachy guy in such short order is impressive.

I've read the ringside reports and Johnson made Gardner look silly, but he was there at the end of the 20rds Johnson did drop him twice ,but he lasted the route..
