Default Re: Lineage of the coloured heavyweight title

Johnson never agreed to fight Langford after he won the title. Langford challenged him but Johnson never agreed to it and so his showing up was not a matter of fear but a matter of never agreeing to the fight anyway. Johnson already defeated Langford. The colored heavyweight title never really meant much anyway. Its sad a lot of black fighters never got a shot. There were a plethora of talented negro fighters at that time!
