I'm guessing the Joe Gans that Johnson was talking about was the one pictured far right here - Johnson name dropped him quite naturally so I'm guessing most people back in the day knew which Gans he was referring to - so I'm guessing this Gans was a known name on the circuit and I would assume by how Johnson describes it someone who really knew how to handle himself
