I can't see a possibility that Langford would fail to time him. And if Langford times and catches Jack surely he puts him out for the count?
Well Tunney said himself it was so hard to hit Dempey (even old rusty one) because he tucked his chin in so much and had great head movement, The Firpo one was just slugger vs slugger and Firpo got a good shot in punchers chance Dempsey was on his knees for a split second flash knockdown,
When Jack fought Flynn he hadnt eaten for 4 days i think that has to take a toll on somebody

Saying all that though im not really sure, will watch and see for others arguments to make my mind up
