Arguable. Norton, Witherspoon, Weaver, ****ey, Mercer, McCall, Holyfield, and Smith would all at the very least hold their own in Louis's era and I think they'd all have a decent chance at decking Joe. Louis was dropped by guys who had no business dropping the all time #1 heavyweight.

I rank Louis #1 of all time, but head to head I think he falls short against prime Ali, Foreman, Holmes, Tyson, and Marciano. Frazier would be a toss up imo.
