Default Re: 1951 Joe Louis vs 1919 Jess Willard and 1923 Luis Firpo 12 rounds

I think that even a prime Louis would have taken longer to put them away than Dempsey did, though he would probabvly have been in complete control throughout a fight with Firpo.

In terms of the 37 year old Louis, I lean towards the idea that he could still outpoint them both, but I wouldn't wan't to bet my house on it.
