Default Quick question on Joe Louis

I know he was orthodox, but was he right handed? Cos he had a mean left hand also. Just wandering, appreciate the help!

Precisely what made him great.. He was a rare commodity who hit exceptionally hard with either hand.. Right or left could KO anyone in equal measures..

I think he was a righty. It was the punch he always sat down on.

I think it was one of the Buddy Baer fights, not sure, but he threw a tripple left hook that was incredible to see from a heavyweight. His right was probabl better, but he could get it done with either hand. I believe it was James Braddock who said his jab was as hard as other fighters straight right.
