Thought I'd post a really good article on this great, somewhat forgotten fighter today and his rivalry with one other great, Archie Moore. Harold Johnson was one of the most skilled fighters of his time and probably of all time. Whats most astonishing about him is the fact that he never lifted weights, but had a physique of a demigod.

Great fighter. Big fan of Harold Johnson.

I have him in my Top 10 at 175.

Nice find. Johnson was a great fighter it was just one of those things that Moore seemed to have an Indian sign on him, mind Charles had one on Moore too, these things happen which is why triangle theories don't hold up.

That fight where Johnson was stopped in the 14th, dont remember which number that one was, it was an absolute classic!:boxing:
