Still, this would be a great match-up.
The O Brien fight was a 6 rounder to a no decision. Where was the incentive?
Johnson is credited with the first 10rds of the Hart fight, since it was over 20rds that should at least have guaranteed him a draw, and with any other referee a win,imo. Johnson broke his arm early in the Battling Jim fight but toughed out a draw though he had been out of the ring for over a year and a half ,and was nearly 36.Poor examples imo.

BTW .You did not answer my last response to your post.
