1914-08-25 Sam Langford w co 4 (12) George Kid Cotton, Atlas AA, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Referee: Jack Sheehan. Having started the fight with a cracking left hook to the jaw, Langford was quickly on top of his opponent who scuttled away at every opportunity. Coming into the fourth, when Langford opened up from head to body with both hands the signs were ominous. It was obvious that Cotton could not take too much more, and after about half a minute he went down on his hands and knees, only getting up when the count had been completed. There had never been any doubt that Langford’s ‘black’ title claim would remain intact.
