Joe Louis Fights In Manila
Joe Louis, born in Alabama, moved to Detroit when he was twelve. With
a friend's encourgagement, Louis used his weekly fifty cents for violin lessons to rent a locker at Brewsters Gym, where
he developed an athlete's physique and a competitor's instinct. Coming off a strong showing in the 1934 Golden Gloves
final, he attracted a manager & trainer who thought he could be a World Champion Boxer. The rest is history.
