He is without a doubt an all time great and if one studies him carefully one would know how good he really was.
What impresses me about Langford was his agression, speed, power and explosiveness. I have seen him against Lang and Flynn and he appeared to have everything despite the old grainy fil quality
What's even more impressive is his resume. Langford holds several wins over Harry Wills, Joe Jeannette and Sam McVea- all of whom are arguably all time top 30 heavyweights. And he also stopped O'Brien and Kid Norfolk- two top 20 all time light-heavyweights unquestionably. Langford holds wins over dozens of top contenders too.
I think as a light-heavyweight Langford is top 5, arguably top 3. I mean he was a great all rounder with an incredible resume.
