Default Re: Joe Louis's resume is very poor

The guy beat EVERYONE. I literally can't think of a fighter who cleaned out a house so thoroughly. Yes, his era wasn't as packed as Ali's his resume does include:

-Baer
-Sharkey
-Schmeling
-Walcott (twice0
-Nova
-Galento
-Conn (twice)
-Lewis
-Uzcuden
-Godoy
-Farr

All quality guys. Most of them would have been top 10 guys in other eras.

Another reason his opposition seems so weak is because Louis was knocking mother ****ers out before some of them had the chance to develop into serious contenders with real credentials. Its the same problem Holmes had and now the Klitschkos have it too. Basically the choice comes down to 1.) exposing and beatng up prospects before they can fully develop or 2.) knock out retreads.
