Table in wrong order[edit]

Why is the table displaying his fight record in reverse order, showing his last fight first & his first fight last? Statistics typically always start with the earliest event at the top, then are listed downward chronologically to the latest event at the bottom. The table isn't able to be clicked to be rearranged as desired by the viewer; it's a fixed table in the wrong order.PhilOSophocle (talk) 16:19, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Record[edit]

The reason for my edit of the Joe Louis win/loss record was due to the controversy surrounding his first fight with Arturo Godoy (it is often said that Godoy was robbed of a points decision after his brave, unafraid, impressive, and courageous battle with Louis)and his first fight with Walcott (Walcott was also said to have been robbed of a clear win after out landing and knocking Joe down). I know the "official" decision went to Joe, but I feel it should go to the true winner. Any thoughts? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Calebdaniel97 (talkcontribs) 14:32, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

we go with the official record here. Carptrash (talk) 14:40, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

military[edit]

How long was Joe Louis in the military and did he fight in World War II? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.26.118.185 (talk) 00:49, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
