George Foreman was from Texas as well. I'd have to put him in my top list of lone star fighters.

Cleveland Williams, Lew Jenkins (Lightwt. Champ), Curtis Cokes,
plus Mike & Tony Ayala.

Of course my friend Terry Daniels got bounced around on the
canvas by Joe Frazier.

watch Clay come on and say dont forget Ali lol. He had some Texas in his blood or something lol.

Over all, I think Johnson and Foreman were the best to come from Texas. The others are good picks also.
