    (May 13, 1914-April 12, 1981)
    Former Heavyweight Champion of the World (held title for 10 years)
    Had 25 successful defenses, and 20 of them were knockouts
    He underestimated Max Schmeling, and got knocked out.
    He forced himself into boxing after his retirement, and lost to Ezzard Charles and Rocky Marciano.
    He has the record for holding the heavyweight title the longest (10 years, 25 successful defenses).
    He is considered one of the top 5 pound-for-pound heavyweights of all time.
    He was one of the first African-American heroes.
    He avenged his loss against Max Schmeling, in a match where Schmeling was billed as 'the German Nazi' (which he wasn't; him and Louis were close friends) and Louis was billed as the American hero.
    Louis knocked out Schmeling, sending him to the hospital for 6 months, a striking blow to Adolf Hitler.
    He is virtually the perfect role model for anybody to look up to.
