Re: Who hit as hard as Fitzsimmons...
Langford gave interviews and spoke about how he learned to punch, and put his hips in the blows, after a few years of fighting pro.
And I dont think it had anything much to do with body weight.
Not one's given any evidence to suggest he wasn't 160 - 168 when he was hitting like a mule anyway. I've read in more than one report that he weighed that much, so I dont know why it's being assumed he was heavier.
