Default Re: Sam Langford vs James Jeffries 1910

After Ketchel picked Johnson to win; when he came to visit Jeff's training camp and watch him train, he was asked to leave, and he did. Johnson asked Ketchel to be his timekeeper, and Stan accepted. So Ketchel was in the Johnnson corner for the fight. Basically Stan had gained a great appreciation for Johnson from their fight. He said Johnson was a whole lot more clever, defensively sound, and a much harder puncher than folks realized.
