Summary
"Joe Louis held the heavyweight boxing championship longer than any other fighter and defended it a record 25 times. During the 1930s and 1940s, the owner of the heavyweight title belt was the most prominent sports competitor not aligned with a team sport. The biography of Louis outlines his rise from poverty to the best-known African American."--Provided by publisher
