You made me do it and it hurts critizing the great Joe Louis.

It is more than speculation that Joe had trouble with movers and Ali was all wrong for Louis.
It is not just size that Ali had the advantage it was speed and skill.
25 defences is a sign of a great heavyweight champion and i am not belittling that.
15 stone is big for those times when Johnson fought.
Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.
