That was funny.

Dundee.

All this time, I thought Ali invented the glove on the head, and all this time, that sucker Max Baer invented it.

:D

After watching the program, i kind of have more appreciation for Joe Louis. I may even think about placing him higher in my top ten list!

they hardly show his fights complete.

And the fights they show(Or most of em, like the Farr and Schmling 1, and the Charles fight.) I have complete.


Kinda of upset they went with highlights.

Does anyone have this recorded on DVD? Joe Louis is one of my all time favorites and I'd gladly pay for shipping and the blank DVD to have it. Even if there's nothing great in terms of rare fight footage (from what I've heard here and on other forums), I'm sure there's enough training footage and interviews to make it worth seeing.
