Default Re: I can see why Jack Johnson beat both these guys

I don't see anytime Langford stands a good shot at Johnson because they peaked and went past prime at similar times. Langford also isn't nearly as dominant as he's made out to be.

Skills wise, neither are too bad for the era. Jeanette's balance and footwork is sloppy though. Langford is a bit square and open but like any good pressure fighter is always taking small steps to maintain pressure and poised to throw a big punch from either hand. Langford as a puncher is technically very good, he dynamically shifts his leverage using pivots that few do
