Yep. I added up Sam Langford's total for example, my P4P #1 and guess what it was? 6-0-1 is his total of beating undefeated fighters.
Battling Jim Johnson: 3-0
John Lester Johnson: 1-0
Bearcat Wright: 1-0
Young Peter Jackson: 1-0-1
And even that's likely to be wrong because Boxrec has probably missed some of those guys fights pre-Langford. It could be a case that Langford has never beaten an undefeated fighter.
