Default The First Time Joe Louis Ever Broke Training Camp

''The first time I ever broke training was in Chicago before the Massera fight. One of the ladies in the building I was living in had a daughter who was much older than I was. About ten days before the Massera fight, she talked me into going to bed with her.

''The next morning when I got up to do roadwork, I felt so guilty that instead of running five milies, I ran ten. I just ran, ran, ran. Instead of boxing 3 rounds, I'd box six. Chappei Blackburn said to me ''Chappie what the hell is wrong with you?'' I told him I felt good. I didn't tell him what I'd done. It worried the hell out of me''.

''Here I am getting ready for a big fight and already I was fooling around. I knocked Massera out in the third round, but despite the kayo, I didn't feel like myself physically, plus I felt guilty even though I received my biggest cheque yet- $1, 200''.

''Joe Louis''
