McClellan would win this one by devastating knockout.[/quote
Ketchel fought Sam Langford, the black guy that beat Heavyweight Champ Jack Johnson, Ketchel a middleweight fought Jack Johnson and dropped him before getting stopped. Ketchel would kill McClellan, KO8
Langford didn't beat Jack Johnson, doofus.
