He was also different to Corbett in most department's so this might not be a good analogy.

Peter Jackson was Jack Johnson's hero. After he won the title he visited Jackson's grave.

Both were highly inteligent me who in a more enlightened era would not have needed to box to make their fortunes.

Jackson and Johnson had the same trainer, Henry Blanken yet they fought and acted differently outside the ring. Jacksonwas a quick boxer who used his footwork and jab to win. Jackson's money punch was a famous 1-2, which according to the news papers arrived in a flash. Johnson preferred clinch and in-fight, with his famous punch was a head snapping uppercut.

I think that Peter Jackson was quite similar to Larry Holmes in terms of style.

Corbett ,who hated Johnson is on record as saying that Jack was the cleverest heavyweight he ever saw.
