Re: In a world with no Joe Louis, how great could Conn have been?
It depends who the champion is, Conn in a way got a very good style match up against Louis who could be ponderous with his movement. He'd do well against bigger slower men, unless they caught up to him ofcourse or just mauled him
I think larger pure boxers would handle him with relative ease. So I think Charles/Walcott both beat him.
It's certainly no given that he wins the title
