TRAINER Jack "Chappie" Blackburn
Louis is rated by many as THE GREATEST Heavyweight boxer of all time; He was silent but deadly, a fighter who let his fists do the talking; His jab was quick and powerful - his left-right combinations were awesome !!!

Joe held the Heavyweight Championship longer than any other Champion; Louis scored 43 knockdowns in his first 22 Professional bouts; Only Jack Kranz and Hans Birkie were not floored; He fought as an amateur light-heavyweight (175-lb class); His amateur record reportedly was 50-4 with 43 knockouts

Nat Fleischer ranked Louis as the #6 All-Time Heavyweight; Charley Rose ranked him as the #4 All-Time Heavyweight; Herb Goldman ranked him as the #6 All-Time Heavyweight; Louis was elected to the Ring Boxing Hall of Fame in 1954 and the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990

It's interesting to note that even in his three loses, Louis managed to bust up his opponents with his jab. Look at Charles here. Schmeling was all puffed up as was Marciano. No one walked out of the ring with Louis clean.
