Herriman Saturday: March 10 1910
March 10 1910 -- Fireman Jim Flynn has signed on to duke it out for a third time with Sam Langford, a fighter who pretty consistently had his number. In the first fight he lost by knockout, in the second he was either awarded a close decision or it was a draw, depending on who you believe.
This fight will be different in that it is scheduled for a whopping 45 rounds, a rare long bout that was generally out of fashion by 1910, and unusual enough for Herriman to devote a strip to it.
