Willis went to the Louis camp regularly and even stated that "Joe is no sucker for the right hand" after the Schemelling fight...Can you just let me know the source , not that I doubt you.

P.s : I know about the Joe LOuis Story...But not that movie, no one can say that a movie is 100% right and is a unbiased source of info, but others like newspaper reports, old time articles , major historians like Hank Klapnan , Monte Cox comments etc on this...
I have the pictures in the Classic Boxing Pictures thread one of them is at Louis' training camp and another is where they're both with Tony Canzoneri, I'll edit this when I get them.

I've seen a few more out there too, I'll find them.

It's a bit small but that is definitely Sam Langford at what looks like JL's training camp.
