One of the greatest boxers in history, Joe Louis reigned as the world heavyweight champion from 1937 until 1949. During this time he defended his championship an astounding 25 times. Both of these feats are still records.
“Boxing is my real passion. I can go to ballet, theatre, movies, or other sporting events … and nothing is like the fights to me. I’m excited by the visual beauty of it. A boxer can look so spectacular by doing a good job.” – LeRoy Neiman
