Default Re: Do you agree with Joe Louis being called the greatest puncher of all time?

1) louis isn't the greatest heavyweight of all time. resume or H2H. his resume is one of the worst you could imagine. and H2H, he loses to many heavy's in history.

2) ali would knock him out no doubt. he moves too well for someone as flat footed and slow as louis. his defence wasn't the best either, so ali would get his shots off with little problem. he'd bust louis up over the first 6 then knock him out soon after. bad match up for joe.

3) he's not the greatest puncher ever. there's loads of fighters that hit harder than he did. too many to list.
