Yeah getting down to fighting weight is one thing but having the tools still intact is another. As for johansson being totally motivated I am never really convinced by him in any way to be honest but I may well be letting my view of him as a lucky bloke with a big punch that was lucky he fought floyd for the tittle cloud my judgement
