Joe Louis had glowing things to say about Lee Ramage, and his masterful defensive skills. He met him early in his career, when a seasoned Ramage gave him fits until Louis' power ended him in the eight round. This GIF is from their second encounter, which was made very quickly, Louis blowing him out in only the second round. Louis remained highly impressed with Ramage, long after he himself became a seasoned veteran champion, comparing him favourably to Billy Conn! Notice referee Jeff "Duke" Kenworthy getting smacked in the face with the towel. The corner wanted to make sure.
