Mac Foster's footwork was compared to Joe's when he was undefeated and climbing the ladder.

You probably meant Ernie Schaaf who Baer beat in Aug,1932. Ernie Schaaf was a great HW prospect who after the Baer beating fought Primo Carnera who "stopped" Schaaf, and Ernie died on the canvas whilst the crowd in MSG booed thinking it was a dive...He had brain damage most likely from the Baer roundhouse rights...Years later Bennie Paret died in the ring after Emile Griffith stopped him in the 12th round in 1962...But the damage was done in the terrible beating the lighter Paret took at the hands of MW bull Gene Fullmer, who kod Paret a few months earlier...Probably with today's technology Ernie Schaaf and Benny Paret would still be living as their brain injuries would have been detected before their fatal last bouts...

It's possible that with Louis's increased activity following the first Charles meeting, that he might have shaken off some ring rust. But at the end of the day, Charles most likely duplicates the victory. I also dare say that had Louis fought Walcott a third time around the proposed time frame ( 1951 ), that Jersey defeats him. Louis had lost most of his handspeed and hand eye coordination. He simply no longer had the tools needed to beat the elite of his class.
