Foreman at any age would always knockout Louis at any age.

The Joe Louis that fought Walcott and Charles are massively different. The Charles/Rocky ones were much more faded. Walcott is a completely different stylistic matchup than Foreman. Joe at this point out-boxes an old Foreman easily. Louis beat plenty of men bigger then him - what an ignorant thing to say.
