The point you make that Johnson would fight Langford, McVey, or Jeannette is hilarious. It is false. Below is an article that nails it.

The point I make is that after koing Ruhlin and Sharkey Fitz did not fight Jeffries for another two years. This link below details the 1912 fight between Johnson and Jeannette being cancelled.
