Life Magazine has produced some of the most beautiful images throughout history, and I am grateful for the collection I have archived. The black and white photography of that era is incredibly telling and I for one can stare at these pics for hours, taking in several details from the images background and just absorbing and sharing the moment. Hats off to the photographers at Life Magazine!

Joe Louis was knocked down by Jersey Joe Walcott three times over two fights in 1947 and 48.

Interesting pic. This is the public enjoying a bar offered at Joe Louis training camp in Greenwood Lake in 1940. Notice the fat lady in black to the left..........I swear she is holding up a rifle.

Average looking? This is an older Joe Louis but still...that is what one looks like when they don't carry any excess muscle that might get in the way of their fighting.

I think that about taps me out on the Joe Louis images. There is both a great deal of respect and sadness when I think of this particular Champion.

In lieu of Ali bringing back my LIFE series back to.......um, life on his birthday, I am gonna give the others another bump, exactly one year since the last bump. That's it until next year when I do it all over again on Ali's birthday, which was actually yesterday now, when his thread was bumped.
