It is interesting that you not Walcott as an exceptional standout. During his own career, few would have compared him to Schmeling or Baer.
Of course if you are right, then Louis beat him twice while he was on the verge of retirment.
Fair point. In retrospect if course i think walcott does stand out as the most talented true heavy in his reign. schmeling is a hell of a fighter but walcott takes it imo and louis was certainly past his best for both
