    Maybe I've not looked at enough yet, but so far it seems it should be a NWS win for Jeannette rather than a draw like on boxrec, but maybe I just happen to have gotten an unrepresentative sample. Langford seems to have been pretty overweight, and in generally poor condition, and Jeannette seems to have been very cautious making for a very tame fight. There was some question as to it being a fake.
