Default Joe Louis fought 9 people twice in his pro career.

here are the 9 people Joe Louis fought twice:
Jersey Joe Walcott, Arturo Godoy, Max Schmeling, Billy Conn, Buddy Baer, Bob Pastor, Lee Ramage, Natie Brown, Abe Simon

pretty amazing that he rematched so many fighters, isn't it?
Nowadays most fighters have a rematch with one guy or maybe with 2.

To be fair. The first Godoy, Walcott and Conn fights were close and he lost vs Schmeling. Those 4 rematches were definitely justified and most likely called for.

Fought Georgie Fitch all the time he was Joe's main spar partner for some time! Mr. Fitch was a helping hand in my gym in the 70s, very stubborn tuff old guy who scared the kids.................................on purpose hahaha!!!
I liked him, he had one hell of a hand shake! Pretty good heavyweight too, fought alot of main go's and a few notible people too! Another New Haven native was Nathan Mann who fought George often in the old New Haven Arena! I think Mann fought Louis also!!! These were tuff men who were very serious about their boxing!!! Ray

Joe Louis's era looks good compared to this one (currently)

How old are you Ray, if you don't mind me asking. And where is your gym located, I'd assume that you mess with the amateurs as well.

I had a guy working with me named Dave Mundy, he was a sparring partner for Ali. Hugest/strongest set of paws I have ever seen to this day............Rockin'
