Default Re: Would Ingemar Johansson have have won the title

Machen came forward totally careless, in that situation any heavyweight with decent punch would have floored him, and it would tell nothing about punching power.
Johansson's jab was plain awful. In his early fights it was half-chopping move half-push, and he didn't improve it much further. The man was a complete disgrace to even fight for a title, even more so to actually win it. He's somewhere near Marvin Hart in class.
