Default Re: Conn versus Loughran

My first thoughts on seeing a film of the Joe Louis-Billy Conn fight (years ago) was..he nearly beat Joe Louis...what lighhtheavy could ever threaten him? I still basically feel that way..and as masterful a defensive boxing whiz that Tommy Loughran was, and he was..I think Conn's natural quickness and intelligent aggression would have enabled him to take a close decision over Loughran.
