In a world with no Joe Louis, how great could Conn have been?
So Conn had a great run as a MW contender and a dominant run as a LHW champ before losing his HW title shot in a dramatic come from behind knockout in arguably the greatest losing performance in history.
If we remove Joe Louis from the timeline here, Could Conn have been HW champ? could he have defended it pre war and could he have defeated Bivins, Walcott and Charles post war?
which HW's would you have favoured Conn from that time?
And of course, had he been hw champ with successful defences, just how great could he have gone on to be?
