Herriman Saturday: April 13 1910


April 13 1910 -- What!? A boxing cartoon NOT about the upcoming Johnson-Jeffries fight? Yes, believe it or not, the rest of the boxing world is not at a complete standstill while awaiting the Fight of the Century. 

Tomorrow night Sam Langford will face off, yet again, with Jim Barry. These guys have spent so much time in the ring together you'd think they were a wrestling tag team, not boxing opponents. And as Herriman indicates in his strip above, Langford keeps beating him, but Barry just keps coming back for more punishment. 

So how will this latest bout turn out? The smart money has Langford with a knockout in the 16th round.
