Re: In a world with no Joe Louis, how great could Conn have been?
He would have been KOd by Cream / Wright / Bivins / Marshall / Charles or even much earlier by Nova / Baer / Braddock / Sharkey / 1 of those or even their predecessors .
N over8ed fighter .
Louis was another circus show , a showbiz stunt , needed 4 American propaganda and nationalism . Like Schmelling was 4 Hitler .
Clay , William Harison , Joe Louis , Max Schmelling , Billy Conn were all hype jobs . Of course that they had a clue about fighting , but they were not any better , and sometimes even much worse than much more obscure and lowly regarded fighters whom get dissed by d **** erotic worshipers in this type of forums .
