Boonie, were you aware that many years and a World War later, Schmeling and Louis became good friends? In addition to financial assistance given to Louis later in his life, Max also paid for Joe's funeral. It's quite an interesting story, the intertwined lives of both these men.

I am now.
I've been spending some time looking into some of the backstories of boxing greats.
Lots of great history to be had.

I figured there still might be a few people around here besides me who don't quite know it all, yet.

Post Script: The full Teddy Atlas interview on the Joe Rogan podcast is excellent, especially the Mike Tyson stuff.
