If Sam could hang with (and often beat) 200lbers. like Johnson and Wills, he should be able to deal with a Frazier in shape for Ali (first fight), at about 205, right? And the other physical dimensions wouldn't be as lopsided against Langford as he tended to face over latter part of his career.
So, would this be a good, realistically competitive match, or would the "modern" guy simply have too much of an advantage in technique and training?
Or would Langford show us all why the name of a never-champion from a hundred years ago still rings in the true fight fan's ears?
