imo ketchel got a bit too big for his boots and caught Johnson with a good shot for a flash kd. Johnson decided enough was enough and ended affairs with one punch.
The fight is supposed to have been rehearsed ,and choreographed in Barney Curleys hotel suite, with Ketchel saying he couldn't pull his punches and Johnson stating ,"you just do what you can" or words to that effect.
Whatever the truth is, Johnson sparked him with his next punch ,and anyone who isnt a total Johnson hater. can see that he is carrying the smaller man picking him up on two occasions and setting him back on his feet.
Mendoza's response is as predictable as it is pathetic.
