Default Re: Sam Langford vs James Jeffries 1910

Big Jeff was weakened by five years of relaxing on his alfalfa farm in California and had ballooned up to over 300lbs. He came

back under the utterly ridiculous premise of winning the title back for the white race. The real reason of course was for the greenbacks.

A scientific fighter like Johnson who was also similiar in size to Jeffries was all wrong for him. Jeff even humbly stated that he thought Johnson would have still beaten him in his prime. In 1910, Langford would have easily defeated Jeffries.
