These two significant victories earned Ferguson a date with the legendary Jack Johnson on 16 April 1903. Johnson came into the fight riding a 14 fight unbeaten streak. Johnson was also the World 'Colored' Heavyweight Champion at the time. Although Ferguson went the distance, he lost a decision to Johnson. The two would meet in a rematch three months later that was ruled a No Contest. Later that year, on 11 December, Ferguson and Johnson fought once again, this time in a grueling twenty-round war, that Johnson won by decision. In 1904, Ferguson and Johnson met yet again, but the match was declared a No Contest. Ferguson was given one last chance against the "Galveston Giant" in 1905. Johnson emerged as the victor in this final match after Ferguson was disqualified in the seventh round for kneeing Johnson in the groin twice.In November 1903 Ferguson took on the World Welterweight Champion Joe Walcott. Ferguson managed to win the bout via decision. In 1904, however, Walcott avenged his loss the previous year by winning a ten-round decision of his own over Ferguson.
