Default Re: IF Langford Won Title in1913 Who Would He Defend Against?

I suspect that he would have defended his title against McVea or Jeanette, because the timeline would have been more likely to favour it than it did with Johnson.

Langford would have given his right arm to get a big money fight with some of the white hopes that Johnson defended his title against, and I am sure that we would have seen him fighting some of the same names as champion.

Ultimately however Langford had links to Hugh McIntosh, and would likely have taken a big money offer to fight one of the black dynamite crew in Australia.

My take.
