Most people ain't too bright. By the time Louis was 22 he had faced and beat 3 former champs, Baer, Carnera, and Sharkey, and was only upset by another former champ, Schmeling. No fighter in history until Tyson came along ever fought harder comp at such a young age.

As far as his title reign goes, Louis' best opponents that he beat were Walcott, Conn, and Buddy Baer, all of whom he beat 2x. Louis only had a few controversial fights, the first Baer and Walcott fights. He gave them immediate rematches and utterly destroyed them leaving any controversy shattered by the force of their concussions.
