That was a no-doubt knockout! Notice Johansson's foot twitching in spasm as he was being counted out.

Did Johansson every fight again?

Yes, Eric, Johansson's career continued after this devastating knockout. In fact, he fought Patterson a third time. Patterson won the see-saw contest in which both men were knocked down. Johansson's last fight was in England in 1963 when he won a controversial decision against Brian London. He retired from the ring at the age of 31.
