Default Re: Max Baer is a Boxing God - Worhsip Him!!

Braddock did indeed whip his ass.

I think Baer is generally underated. As far as his mentality goes, he was definitely hurt by it, but you got to love him. Anyone seen the footage of him "training" by building sandcastles? Classic.

I do think Baer was made for Louis in terms of his style. If you're talking about changing his mentality as regards training, then it would be benificial, but not as far as the Louis fight goes - if you want to change his fighting mentality, that may even hurt him more than help.

Baer adds to the tapestry of boxing history - I like him just the way he is.
