Default Re: In a world with no Joe Louis, how great could Conn have been?

Conn doesn't get enough credit for having the balls of steel to step in the Ring and go 13 rounds with Joe Louis at 166 pounds.

Billy Conn was a tough SOB and could fight.

Today someone would request a 'catchweight' fight with Louis

They don't make them like Joe Louis and Billy Conn anymore sadly.
