Hidalgo – for example would you care to explain to me why you had issues with Floyd sucker punching Ortiz while you had no issues, made no comment about Ortiz headbutting Mayweather several times before the warning and before the most deliberate headbutt in the history of boxing. Should we bury yours and Merchant’s discrimination too.Posted April 12, 2013 5:15 am

An old out of shape and 37 was real old back in the talent rich days, lost a fight to a young tall in shape fighter. Johnson did not throw the fight. . Prime to prime Johnson would have won…prime to prime Joe Louis would have beat the Rock…but Joe was old 36 and no longer prime. “”””Johnson was knocked out in the 26th round of the scheduled 45 round fight. Johnson, although having won almost every round, began to tire after the 20th round, and was visibly hurt by heavy body punches from Willard in rounds preceding the 26th round knockout.
Size has nothing to do,Johnson could take out all the heavies of today
According to wikipedia (“Mann Act”) Johnson was pardoned in 2009.Posted April 9, 2013 2:50 pm
You have the proof on this thread of what the Highest Court have been saying for years: coward rednecks, klans members are roaming around here under the hoods of their keyboards….
All of those greats from yesterday………..jack johnson, jack dempsey, marchiano, patterson, joe louis………..they would all make great cruiser weights today. All way to small for the heavies of the 21 centuryPosted April 9, 2013 12:42 am
Just taking credit for another groups work. typical of an organization that gives value to a silver titlistPosted April 8, 2013 11:04 pm
what happened was such a travesty he don’t even need pardoningPosted April 8, 2013 10:18 pm
Pardoning a dead man means nothing. Our current President and our generation owes nothing to Jack Johnson. The people, the society, the government that screwed him are long dead. Let history be.Posted April 8, 2013 8:06 pm
johnson was a sly devil. one of the few heavies that could hold his own in the ring today. no wonder ali idolized him.Posted April 8, 2013 7:23 pm
