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

Conn doesn't get enough credit for having the ***** 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.
