Re: In a world with no Joe Louis, how great could Conn have been?
I honestly think Conn would have been heavyweight champion, if Louis had not been born.
Hard to see who else would have beaten him, unless he had come up againt a very bad sylistic match up.
What relay ruined Conn's resume was not Louis, but the war. He lost his best years to the war, and would have built an incredible resume with or without wining the heavyweight title.
