They both beat up bums and they didn't do it with style like Dempsey,Liston or a Tyson.
Willard is just unfortunate a man called Jack Dempsey was around. Sorta like is Wladimir was around in the mid 80s and ran into small heavyweight called Mike Tyson.
Look at the point that Jack Johnson was at in his career, and circumstances surrounding how the fight was set up to favour Willard. Who else did Willard beat in his career? Wlad holds two wins over Chris Byrd and beat David Haye, two top HW's of the era's he's fought in, and they were in their prime.
Wlad vs Mike Tyson is a debate for a another day!
