Default Re: Was Wills better than McVea, Jeannette or Langford?

PowerPuncherNo, in the first 4 fights Langford only won the second fight, 3 wins for Wills (the first an SD the other 2 he dominated). Langford scored a KO in the 5th fight, a fight where Wills had won every previous round in. Wills won the 6th andd 7th fights handily shortly after the 5th fight both also in 1916
Langford Ko'd Wills in 1914 ( 2nd fight ) and and 1916 ( 5th fight )

To make a correction, the first five fights were 2-2-1. Wills won twice via decision, and Langford twice via 10 count KO. Based on this, I think Langford who was slightly past his prime to past his prime from 1914-1916, got the better of Wills from 1914-1916. Fair enough?
