Who is Mark Johnson?

Marcellus Joseph Johnson, better known as Mark "Too Sharp" Johnson is a boxer in the Super Flyweight division. Johnson a fast and skilled southpaw from Washington, D.C., won titles at flyweight and junior bantamweight twice. He also was a pound-for-pound ranked stalwart during the prime of his career, which ran from 1990 to 2006. If Johnson's resume was largely devoid of star names, it was because standout fighters of the day, such as Johnny Tapia, Danny Romero, Michael Carbajal and Ricardo Lopez are widely considered to have avoided him. Johnson was the first African-American boxer to capture a World Flyweight title. In 2012 he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
