I'll never forget the Jones fight, where Stewart was just talking crap about Johnson pressuring & throwing punches then boom, lights out. Johnson made Stewart swallow his tongue. Good luck in retirement Road Warrior!!

Default What is (or should be) the Road warrior true record ?

In light of Glen's recent retirement, I thought I could pay my homage to the man and the fighter by creating this thread.

We all know Glen has been robbed many times. I would like to determine what would be his record if he hadn't been robbed so much.

Feel free to add, discuss, bitcsh or whatever.

The obvious robberies I know of:

Sven Ottke. Johnson whooped him. Just have to see Ottke's face at the end of the fight, his expression, to know he knew he had lost.

Silvio Branco. Dude got pummeled all night long. Couldn't get out of the way of Glen's overhand right.

Clinton Woods. Out of the draw and the SD battles, at least one was a pure robbery, the draw one. I haven't seen their third fight yet.

Julio Cesar Gonzales. Horrible robbery.

If we could change just these wrongs, Glen would have 4 more wins over former world champs, and a 55-14-1 record instead of 51-17-2.

The close fights some people say Glen won:

Dawson I
Cloud

If you have seen other fights Glen ''lost'' and that you feel he was robbed, just add them !

An inspiration to the sport of boxing,iIn my opinion this man should have a gold ticket for the HOF as it not for the likes jhonson boxing would struggle a Champ who comes out given 110% every time just to know he's gonna get stitched up.May u live a long and fruitful life CHAMP.....

True.

But put that aside, he DID get robbed multiple times. So when he would lose a close fight, he would automatically call it a robbery. But we know better.

Ok, so from the beggining:
Glen Johnson - Sven Ottke
Close fight, could've gone either way. I had it 115:113 for Glen, but he gave a lot of rounds away by not pushing hard enough.
Unlucky, but not robbed.
Glen Johnson - Silvio Branco
Italian couldn't get through Glens defence whole night, he got beaten up, awful robbery from awful WBU judges with weird WBU scoring system. I gave Branco 2 rounds.
Robbed
Glen Johnson - Omar Sheika
Another Close fight, both guys traded big rounds, both won 4 rounds clearly, result depend on how you scored the other two. I gave both to Glen, had him winning by 2 points, but in reality he can't complain.
Unlucky, but not robbed
Glen Johnson - Julio Cesar Gonzalez
Close fight with a lot of punches thrown by both. I had it draw, could've gone either way, although most of people seem to favor Johnson.
Unlucky, but not robbed
Glen Johnson - Clinton Woods I
Good fight and another close one in Glens career. Woods pulled out last 2 rounds to get a draw on my card.
Legit draw
Glen Johnson - Clinton Woods III
Another close battle between the two. I scored it... draw again, but somehow I gave all close rounds to Woods, so if anybody should've won it, that would be Glen.
Unlucky, but not robbed
Glen Johnson - Carl Froch
Legit loss. Glen won couple rounds and made it tough for Carl, but Froch was better man
Legit loss
Glen Johnson - Andrzej Fonfara
Glen schooled the kid, had much better punch accuracy and defence. Robbery.
Robbed
That's pretty much it, there are some fights of Glen that I need to score.
