Max Baer has a deeper resume against acteses having come along in an era where they were more prevelant. Him and Joe Louis made a clean sweep of the holywood A list between them.
Of course; in a way this is precicely my point.
Johnson inhabited society's underbelly long before it was fashionable. These factors work in his favour rather than against in this modern era.
Johnson is as "street" as it gets.
Baer would still do well in his niche, but he'd be coming across like Johnson's unfashionable cousin as far as it goes.
