Phil Johnson was a journeyman fighter whose career spanned three decades. His son Harold Johnson would go on to capture the World Lightheavyweight Championship.
Phil Johnson was a good boxer with a sharp jab, and a good punch. However, Johnson was over-matched early in his career, and became nothing more then a stepping stone for future champions or contenders.
Phil and son Harold became the first father/son combination to not only fight the same fighter, but to lose to him as well. Both Phil and Harold suffered knockout defeats at the hands of future world heavyweight champion Jersey Joe Walcott.
