I see.........so what you're saying is, Joe Louis wasn't actually fast at all.

Hmmmmm.....

Were did I say that?
Please, show it were I said that.

I said, watch out if it isn't sped up, because it can be sped up.
It's something a lot of old films have (see Charlie Chaplin for example)

I didn't say he wasn't fast.

Edit:I didn't even mention Louis, I was talking about old films in general.
Please, don't start searching for straws when your feelings get hurt for no good reason next time.

I like Billy Conn II. Beautiful, ripping combination. Not really often you knock a guy out, then hit him again before his legs even begin to sag.

Basically the big slow guys who needed to plant their feet to punch. He looked really quick against them for some reason

Some of those fights 1935 - '36, when he was between 20 and 22 years old, and a pound or four under 200.

The Levinsky and Retzlaff ones I posted. Max Baer.
Against Lee Ramage too, but that film is off-speed.

That leaping left hook that Louis stiffed Lee Ramage with in the rematch thunders its way out of the memory bank.

The triple left-hooks against the concrete chinned Max Baer that Louis landed was
as fast as any welterweights and thrice as hard...NO ONE survives this Louis of 1935
once he hurt you...NO ONE ! The perfect left hooks from the perfect puncher of alltime.
