Louis did not have his right hand for the Marciano fight, he shook him a couple of times with left hooks , but his reflexes were gone.

Great poster McVey - ref the Marciano quote I suspect Marciano wanted to say some good things about Joe because he loved the guy - all I need to do is watch the films to know with my own eyes that Louis barely registered at all on Marciano though - ps gutted you don't have The Hague fight - what was your impression of the bits you saw?
