At worst i think you have to assume Langford was very beatable. Dangerous, but beatable.
Well I don't really think that's true. I reckon his prime ran from 1907-1914. In this time he lost only to McVey (emphatically avenged) and was outboxed by Clark in a fight where for the first time in his career he couldn't keep up with the pace of his opponent (an opponent he'd previously iced). From this point on he was very beatable but during his prime it just isn't a fair comment.
