Re: Ingemar Johansson was not knocked out cold by Brian London
Nice post. Ingo is definitely underrated historically, and mostly unappreciated. However, his career was fairly short and his competition was solid, but not quite to the level of some of his contemporaries. I'm not sure if he quite makes my all-time top 25, but he's definitely around 30-35.
I would have loved to see Marciano versus Johansson. That would have been a fun slugfest (although I see Rocky winning this one).
