Johansson also held the European heavyweight title twice, from 1956 to 1958 and from 1962 to 1963.

  • He affectionately named his right fist "toonder and lightning" for its concussive power (it was also called "Ingo's bingo" and the "Hammer of Thor"), and in 2003 he was ranked at No. 99 on The Ring magazine's list of the 100 greatest punchers of all time.
