A well known and respected boxer on three continents in the early 1900's, Sam 
Langford was considered to be one of the most punishing and skilled boxers in 
history. How great was Langford? Within 2 years of turning pro he defeated the 
best lightweight of his time in the form of legendary Joe Gans. Within 3 years 
of turning pro he was fighting heavyweights.......and beating them! Style wise 
he was a boxer/puncher who worked his way on the inside behind a solid jab and 
straight punches to the body. During a time of brawlers and dirty fighters 
Langford stood out from the rest with his boxing skills and seldom threw a punch
while off balance. Sam unlike many others of his time carried power in both hands 
and could end the fight with a  punch from either hand. Langford was a short stout 
man only standing 5'6", but had unusually long arms and he moved his feet well to 
set up his powerful punches. Langford would often hold back on his opponents in 
hopes of getting a rematch and unlike other fighters never lost his quickness 
as he moved up in weight. Although his weight permitted him to fight in weight 
divisions other than heavyweight, no champion would risk his title against him,
and America at the time had no desire to see another black heavyweight champion
after Jack Johnson. Surely his rare boxing gifts merited title shots at all 
weights! Sam Langford was one of 7 children and ran away from home at the age of 
12, working his way to Boston. It is impossible to chronicle his many outstanding 
fights against the other great fighters of his time since he fought them all so 
many times. Here is my attempt but it can never truly reflect the many great 
achievements of Langford. After Langford arrived in Boston he got a job from fight 
manager Joe Woodman to sweep up the old Lennox Athletic Club and showed good skills 
in the ring instead of cleaning. At the age of 19 weighing 135 lbs, he made his 
professional boxing debut, winning his first fight by knockout. Within eighteen
months he fought and defeated legendary Joe Gans, the world lightweight champion. 
Unfortunately, it was not a title bout, as was the characteristic of Langford's 21 
year ring career. Sam Langford never held a world boxing title, although he fought 
and defeated many of those who did. At the end of that year he also defeated well 
respected Jack Blackburn another great black fighter of the time who achieved later 
fame as Joe Louis' trainer. Langford now started to move up in weight and fought 
to a draw with the original Joe Walcott. After just three years as a pro, Langford 
and his manager felt he was ready for the heavyweight big leagues. In 1906, Sam 
Langford took on future heavyweight champion Jack Johnson, who weighed 30 pounds 
more than himself. It took Johnson, (who was in his prime and had both a size and 
weight advantage) the entire 15 rounds to defeat Langford on points. Thereafter, 
Johnson never gave Langford a rematch although reports said he won the fight easily. 
Maybe he thought Langford was holding back? Johnson was one of many great black 
heavyweights that Sam fought. During the first quarter of the twentieth century, 
Langford fought Sam McVey fifteen times, Joe Jeannette fourteen times, Jim Barry 
twelve times, Jeff Clark eleven times, and Harry Wills twenty three-times. In total 
72 of his fights came against the other great black heavyweights of his time when 
Langford himself was never more than a blown up middleweight. Langford also defeated 
many of the so called "White hopes" like Sandy Ferguson, Tony Ross and Fireman Jim 
Flynn. Langford also traveled to England and defeated British heavyweight champion 
Iron Hauge in four rounds. In 1910 Langford meet his equal in punching power and 
toughness when he fought Stanley Ketchel. Boxing skill was still on the side of 
Langford however. It was ruled a six round no decision. The newspapers agree that 
Langford had the better of the fight early but Ketchel soaked up the punishment 
and came back strong in the end to make it a very close fight. Most ringside viewers 
did tip Ketchel as the winner but it was very close. Still Ketchel learned enough 
in that fight to never put his title on the line against Langford. After taking on 
the toughest middleweight in Stanley Ketchel, Langford now moved up in weight and 
fought former light heavyweight champion Jack O'Brien. It was not close as Langford 
pushed his way to the inside and took O'Brien apart for a 5th round knockout. 
Langford decided to travel and fight around the world after this since a title shot 
was no where in sight. In Australia he fought ten fights and lost only once to 
another great black heavyweight Sam McVey, but he also defeated McVey 3 times. In 
Paris he fought Joe Jeannette and lost a close decision. He later defeated Jeannette 
(the only knockout loss of Jeannette's career) for the "black heavyweight title". 
He was a terror to all heavyweights of the time no matter where they were. He 
defeated Iron Hauge in London, Jim Flynn in Los Angeles, Jim Barry in Melbourne, 
Tony Caponi in New York, and Sam McVey in Sydney. The list of accomplishments goes 
on and on but the end of boxing for Sam was near. By the early 1920's, Langford's 
advancing blindness began to cause problems, but not before he won the heavyweight 
championship of Mexico and Spain in 1923. When Langford won the title he was nearly 
blind and could only see shadows of the men he was fighting, Langford was operating 
on instinct alone. A knockout by a virtual nobody in 1926 finally convinced him 
to withdraw from the ring. By 1944 Langford was alone, blind and living in a Harlem 
tenement in New York City. Reporter Al Laney tracked him down while researching an 
article on old-time black boxers and discovered his plight. The resulting publicity 
prompted Langford's fans to raise a trust fund, enabling him to live out his last 
years in modest comfort. Sam Langford died in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1956, a 
year after his election into The Ring magazine's Boxing Hall of Fame. He was the 
first non-champion ever to be so honored. Sam Langford continues to be remembered 
for his achievements. In 1972, Weymouth Falls erected a plaque to his memory in
its community center. His Cambridge, Massachusetts, grave was also given a proper 
headstone in 1986.
