1913-12-20 Sam Langford w pts 20 Joe Jeannette, Luna Park, Paris, France. Defending the ‘black’ title yet again Langford forced the contest throughout, dropping Jeannette for ‘nine’ three times in the 13th. Although Jeannette landed heavily in the 15th and 19th sessions, after it failed to halt Langford’s forward march he was hardly able to stand up in the 20th before being cheered for his bravery at the final bell.
