Max Schmeling dropped him in rounds four and 12 of their first match.

Jimmy Braddock dropped him in round one.

Tony Galento came off the deck to floor Louis in round three.

Buddy Baer floored him in round one of their first meeting.

Jersey Joe Walcott decked him in round one and round four of their first bout.

Walcott knocked Louis down in round three of their second performance.

Rocky Marciano posted two knockdowns against him in the eighth round.

A grand career total of ten knockdowns.

A certain poster argued until he was blue in the face that Charles knocked Louis down but the film shows otherwise.

A question for you, janitor. Why do you think Godoy rushed after Louis when he was stopped in their second fight?

That's the number I got a long time ago, but I can't locate another KD on his "official" record.

Nat Fleischer included exhibition matches in his Ring Record Book and Encylopedia, and I wonder if Louis might have been decked in an exhibition that somehow got added to his folklore. (I haven't found any indication of another one in my half-century old copy of it. Admittedly I haven't scrutinized the finely printed text in it much as of late.)

In 72 fights. China chinned would be accurate if he only fought once every year or two like todays top fighters do.

He didn't suffer his first knockdown until his 28th pro fight.

There is, or was, a man in Charlotte named Leo Johnson. I last spoke with him around 14 or 15 years ago. He claimed he fought Louis in a couple of exhibitions in the military. He said he dropped Louis in one of those exhitbitions, and said Louis knocked him out the following round.

I doubt this is the missing knock down, just took this time as an excuse to tell that story.

If he was KD 10 times he got up 8-9, he always tried to get up and was KO'd vs Schmeling and Marciano, he avenged the Schmeling fight with a Brutal KO but was an older fighter(his last fight for Marciano, the question should be How many other champs where KD and got up to win

Louis got off the floor to win, Mike Tyson never did and Lennox Lewis never did, getting off the floor to win after getting hit by known punchers is not china chin, and Joe had a very agressive style
