Langford seems to have intimidated many of his opponents into submision, this despite being a head shorter than them.

Sam Langford beat Harry Wills for the 2nd time in 1916 after Wills had already beaten Sam Langford 3x, including the very first time they fought in 1914, when Sam was only 187lb and arguably near his prime.

Langford was certainly past his best when the series began. After he returned from Australia in 1913, he balooned in weight and started to put on lacklustre performences. It was being commented upon.

The point is that the series was prety even early on, and only became lopsided in favour of Wills because Langford was going into the tank while Wills was still improving. By the end of the series it was widley thought that Wills was carrying Langford just to preserve his meal ticket.
