aye...great video...and hearing johnson just talking is good......they (jeanette and johnson) fought 10 times you know.........jeanette and sam langford fought 14 times!!...and jeanette never fought until he was 25 years old.....he supposedly always felt bitter at johnson for not giving him a crack at the title.
jeanette fought sam mcvey over nearly 50 rounds lasting almost half a day and got of the floor 22 times to beat mc vey!!

another version of that video..

is that an auto-biography?....its got a different writer...i've heard that book mentioned a lot
dont matter, i'll get that one too then.....beats watching the shite thats on telly lately anyway, eh
its actually a biography, ive seen the documentary of the same name, and the book shits over it, its mad detailed... some of the stories are hilarious... looking at the comments on youtube of the jack sparring video i posted up, some dude reminded me of a story from the book... jack was a real petrolhead, and oldbill pulled him over for speeding, they gave him a $50 speeding ticket, but jack gave him a $100 and said take that, im coming back this way LMAO what a boss... i got my book from waterstones, but your prolly find it on amazon cheaper...
