he wasn't given the opportunities that robinson was given. robinson also had an air of invincibility. he never lost to a welterweight. he's the least flawed of all fighters by a long shot. he had great (not good, but great,) speed, and power, and a great chin.
he fought johnson, for instance, but only when he was a youngster. when johnson was HW champion langford couldn't get a fight with him
