I guess you could argue that Langford was still pre-prime, both as a fighter and a puncher though.
Yeah as far as trap setting goes, he's one of the best ever (as he proved by knocking out Flowers whilst bling!).

Ofcourse Langford could end it with one punch, but his puncher's chance is just as good as Ketchel's imo.

I pick him to outpoint Ketchel early doors by catching him on the way in and beating him up once there, but I see Langford tiring late on as Ketchel keeps coming forward until he overwhelms him or runs out of time.
