Default Re: Sam Langford vs James Jeffries 1910

Langford himself said he had no chance against Jeffries. I actually think this is a good style matchup for Jeff, for Langford was not the defensive wizard that Johnson was, plus he was only 5'7" and 170-180, didn't use a lot of footwork, and was willing to slug it out, which would be a dangerous proposition against a guy 6'1" 220-230 who had a good chin and heavy punch. It would be very entertaining though, regardless of result, because both were very tough cookies.
