Description

Joe Louis was one of boxing's all-time greats. Undisputed heavyweight champion of the world for 11 years and nine months, the 'Brown Bomber' put his title on the line no less than 25 times. Having smashed the despicable colour bar that denied so many deserving fighters a title tilt, many experts consider Louis the greatest heavyweight of them all.
