Statue looks badass. Bit troll-like though.

Looks more like Langford to me ,which is strangely ironic and ,possibly fitting.

I've heard Manassa, Colorado are preparing a new statue of Dempsey that looks suspiciously like Harry Wills.

Langford has a chubbier face, fuller lips, wider nose. Johnson has a more gaunt slimmer face, still he was usually laughing

Oh, it's by no means a perfect likeness of Sam Langford, but it's a decent effort.

If a statue was made of Sam Langford it would be the king of all statues
