Langford was the greater fighter, but Wills was probably the better heavyweight.

This, Langfords overall career is infinitely better then Wills' but as a heavyweight Wills probably takes it, although still kinda close.

At heavyweight Wills is better which is highlighted by his 14 or so wins over Langford excl a couple of draws and only 2 defeats. He also has wins over Sam mcvea and Joe Jeanette, Who are the same guys that make up the bulk of Sam Langfords hwavyweight resume.

In my opinion Wills probably the best heavyweight never to win a title alongside Quarry and Langford himself, but Wills was the best.

And for the record, I voted Wills because I know you made this thread per our discussion in the Dempsey thread where I clearly highlighted it was only at heavyweight.

As I also said in that thread, Langford is by far the better fighter all round and his resume is much better than Wills' overall.
