    Notice I say , give him a hard fight , not actually beat him !
    Billy Conn gave him a close run thing , which other lght heavys thru history could maybe have his corner worried ?

    Ezzard Charles, in my heavily biased opinion, would beat any version of Louis from Conn onwards.

    Spinks, Moore, Tunney and Fitsimmons could all give him issues.
    Foster, Jones and Greb all get stopped imo, Greb walking forward into Louis's punches without the power to keep him off is a death sentence. Jones and Foster just don't have the durability to beat Louis.


    Putting any light heavy against the best Louis is like sending a prisoner to executioner's block

    It is indeed George . Would like to have seen Charles face Joe in prime , could have been a classic.
