Default Re: Joe Louis's resume is very poor

Baer was a mediocrity.he benefits from a nice backstory and unforgivens rightful observation about heavyweights.

Compare him to some middleweight\welterweight etc pure punchers and his ability was about on par with slammin sammy nesmith, bobby joe young or or Roy Gumbs-someone of that ilk.A guy like Don Lee orFully OBel looks like an efficient Zarate\Louis'esque killing machine next to Baer.

This might only be tangentially relevant, but still it had to be said.Though it also has to be said Louis did him in like a fighter of his ability should with an unskilled plodding banger.No overconfident or technically flawed slip ups there.
