I really dont see how Wills has much of an argument to rank ahead of Langford at all. Prime wills met past prime Langford. By the end of 1917, Langford had knocked him out twice, although he had admittedly lost 2 decisions. It wasnt until 1918 when Langford had deteriorated further that Wills managed his 2 knock outs. Then as the continued to fight and langford deteriorated more, Langford still competed well and was not knocked out. Given the two knockouts a past prime langford delivered, i am fairly certain that prime langford is far too much for Wills
