Default Gene Tunney vs. Harold Johnson

How would this one turn out? I favour Tunney due to his faster feets, better footwork and better, more imaginative boxing brain.

This would be soooo close, but the fleet footed Tunney may have resorted to the same tactics as Willie Pastrano..only with a slightly wider margin of victory dur to being bigger and a better puncher than Willie....I should post a disclaimer about Johnson however...this in no way discredits him at all in any department as a fighter...this fight would be due more to the physical advantages of Tunney as much as anything else. A really close decision for Tunney.

I have to go with Tunney, but Harold Johnson would be a tought match for any light heavyweight, and more heavyweights than people think!

Tunney by clear decision. Too quick and smart for Harold.
