Another brilliant vid from d brown. Subscribe to him guys.
Damn, Johnson was ripped.
I can imagine that many of his haters on the Current Board would denigrate him as a bodybuilder and a roid machine on the regular. And the sad part is that it'd be many times more civil than the stuff he had thrown at him back then.
Never looked at the efficiency of the corners of Johnson and Burns before, but seeing the speed of them getting into ring between rounds and apparent organised roles was impressive in my opinion.
Great video of one of the best Heavies ever.
Ving Rhames wanted to play Jack Johnson in a movie ...I think he would have been perfect
Utterly classless bums.
Where’s the earmuffs? The piston like jabs? The 1-2-3? Where’s the head movement? No cutting off the ring, no real punch mechanics or boxing skill being shown. They’re just standing in front of each other and clinching most the time. You can also see moments where their punches look sloppy, almost like slaps. No real muster on the punches, as they clearly didn’t know how. If I saw a fighter at my gym boxing like that, I’d tell them to keep their front foot angled 10 degrees more to the left, and have them raise their gloves more. Hands that low leave you open and vulnerable. It’s a mistake a newcomer wouldn’t even make. I’ve seen better boxing at the LA Fitness Boxing 101 course. And also this footage means nothing. Nobody who made this was there that day to match the right colors. In fact all it does is make them look worse, and the footage more fake. No Christmas presents for you.
I can't access it.
I don't.James Earl Jones played him and he WAS perfect!
I thought Burns would have looked Yellower
What the video won't show? What device are you on?

the actor michael jace from The Shield would have been absolutely perfect to play johnson, just a pity he couldnt keep his temper. It'll be a long time before he eats steak again
