BLACK BOXERS. THE BIG MAN WINS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 January 1912
BLACK BOXERS. THE BIG MAN WINS. The two niggers, Sam M'Vea and Sam Langrord, met in the stadium at Rushcutters' Bay, Sydney, last ruesday morning, to light for what may be called the championship of the world in. the absence of the holder jf the title—the /nvincible Jack lohnson. On the last occasion when ;hese two nigs, met in Paris, the result was a draw, but on this occasion M'Vea was given the decision on points after a twenty round go. By a great many the decision of the referee, Snowy Baker, was received with derision, and such good judges as ex-champion Tommy Burns and "Amateur," of the "Referee," were strong in denouncing it. Langford, 5ft. Gin. in height, and scaling 12 stone 21bs, looked an easy thing for M'Vea, 5ft. llin., and 14st. 31bs, but the little chap is such a clever two-handed fighter that in the ppipion of many he more than outpointed M'Vea, though towards the end his right eye was closed up. Some say that the damage to the right optic was due to a bump from Is ...
