'Tis a thing of beauty, especially the one at 4:13 where he sets up the guys chin with the left and then detonates the right off it

I grew a reinvigorated appreciation for Joe Louis when I saw his Ringside on ESPN Classic recently. He's a beauty to watch (no homo ).

"If you insult Carusso does he sing aria for you?"

Joe Louis on being asked why he didn't beat up an abusive motorist after an accident.

An Italian tennor.

Sort of the Pavaroti of his day.

If only Tyson could have been so reflective after his last fender bender.

I think Max Bear said something like: Fear is seeing Joe Louis across the ring from you, knowing that he wants to go home early.

Excellent video. Great music. I agree with The Pup - it is amazing how calm he appears. It is also amazing how hard he hit. I think Tyson was a great fighter, but I hope some of those people who thought he would walk all over Joe look at this video and watch Joe's fights again.
