Good quesitons. Perhaps its becasue Johnson lost those fights. You don't see Choynski, Klondike, or Griffin on the list either.

Johnson said Willard was the worst champ to put on gloves.

Well, they'd have to be the greatest of all time to beat him, wouldn't they? He beat Sullivan. And Bob Fitzsimmons at number 3 with Tom Sharkey at 4?
