Default Re: Joe Louis's resume is very poor

I wouldn't.Not unless they had glaringly bad punch resistance, stamina or some other terrible flaw.

I refuse to ask fighters to show substantially more than they actually did in the ring.Baer never showed he was capable of beating the kind of heavyweights that would exemplify that to me.

Now, i think he could beat a good amount of fighters who had a notch or two more skill and polish than him, sure.Power is a great equaliser.But a lot more? nah he's not marciano.Too many other flaws other than a lack of boxing skills.
