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)

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)

Quote Source[edit]

I have looked, but have been unable to find any decent reference for the quote "Everyone has a plan until they've been hit". I was looking for video or audio recording, or possibly old newspaper footage, but the reference in the article is just a blog post by someone in bangladesh. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.186.226.130 (talk) 16:34, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Joe Louis fist statue in Detroit[edit]

I have removed one sentence from the article: "Because of his efforts to fight Jim Crow laws, the fist was symbolically aimed toward the south." The article cited in the footnote does not support this interpretation.

People in Detroit have wondered for years why the fist points to Canada. Although Canada is south of Detroit, and the explanation I deleted may explain this positioning, the article does not say this. Perhaps someone can find a reliable source for this; otherwise, it remains unverifiable. Jnmwiki (talk) 15:14, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

I think RM is largely forgotten as great heavyweight champion today, but he was power to wrecken with. The old question will always be opened who is the greatest ever heavyweight boxing champion? I would Have to say Marciano, Ali, Louis, they all share the first place, that is the best answer! They were just too good! Below is some interesting info on these people & more:

IP edits of dubitable status - Vandalism or good removals?[edit]

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Joe_Louis&diff=708322547&oldid=708009850 was this a valid edit??

I undid (sort of), a huge removal in the Title Contention that resulted in a sudden typoed segue at "international community/ record holder Max Baer" - could not find the deletion (2000+ characters) in the history, and there were subsequent edits. It may be that someone wanted to remove the whole "Brown Bomber" section. 72.200.20.62 (talk) 23:29, 4 April 2016 (UTC) not logged in
