Description:
Mark "Too Sharp" Johnson (1971-) was the first African-American boxer to capture a World Flyweight Title, in 1996. Born and raised in Washington D.C., the fighter learned valuable lessons from his Father, who coached him about boxing and life. "One thing I learned from Father is to start with one slice of bread, then go for two. Before you know it, you have the whole loaf....I'm here to show young people you can make something positive from a negative environment. I did it in the same neighborhood I grew up in."
