Default Re: Philidelphia Jack O'Brien gave Jack Johnson fits over the short distance.

The more you read about Johnson in print, the less impressive he becomes. O'brien, who was but a middle weight here appears to have edged the heavyweight champion of the world.

O'brien had speed and skills. I fail to see Johnson's vaunted defense helping him out in this fight. He was sin fact out jabbed by a much lighter and smaller man.
