Destruction.

Boxing Purist's picture

Joe Louis again makes quick work of another mountain of a man in yet another title defense. Simon never had a chance from the beginning and after the first blow from Louis to start the 6th session it was all over.

dizzy's picture

Joe Louis will go down as one of the greatest heavyweights of all time, and rightfully so.  His world heavyweight title records, however, start raising some questions once you dig deeper into them. The great Emmanuel Steward already talked about how Joe Louis' opponents were carefully picked. One of the things that made me raise eyebrows and IMO should be talked about more is how many times Louis fought the same people over and over again. Rematches in boxing happen very rarely, their existence is not good for a boxer because usually they happen when a) the first fight ended in an upset b) the result of the first fight was unsatisfying and inconclusive c) there is no one else to fight, which is a sign of an incredibly dire talent pool. Other than that rematches almost never happen, fighting the same people, even highly-ranked contenders, over and over again is one of many shady tactics implemented in order to pump your winning record (overall and in title fights) while also potentially avoiding accusations of ducking elite competition.

There have been quite a few examples of rematches that were, quite frankly, pointless. Like Deontay Wilder's rematch with Luis Ortiz, Floyd Patterson's third (!) fight with Ingemar Johansson, or Rocky Marciano's rematch with Ezzard Charles. Patterson's title reign has already become infamous for the way his opponents were picked, and this adds to it - instead of moving on and fighting other contenders, particularly Sonny Liston, Patterson pursued another fight with Johansson, successfully boosting his record with +1. Rocky Marciano's rematch with Charles was an example of facing a fighter highly rated by public but also worn out from years of fighting and most importantly already figured out before, in other words a great pick to pump Marciano's undefeated record. Wilder's rematch with Ortiz honestly looks like a smart but a bad-taste-in-mouth move to pick an opponent that wouldn't be questioned for credibility, wouldn't ruin a lucrative rematch with Tyson Fury and would boost Wilder's title defenses to a historical number 10.

Joe Louis outdid almost everybody else with rematches, sometimes results of first fights left many questions, sometimes Louis had straight up cherry picks, solving puzzles he already confidently solved. That really makes you question his historical record of 25 title defenses.

Expertly said. Absolutely agree.
