Here's a new little feature we're trotting out to celebrate great moments in sports history (at least great moments in sports history that we can find on YouTube). If you've got any suggestions or nominations or clips, by all means, hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let's get to today's anniversaries!
Joe Louis vs. Buddy Baer
On May 23, 1941, Louis, the heavyweight champion of the world at the time, defeated Buddy Baer when the latter was disqualified at the beginning of the seventh round, due to Baer's manager arguing with the ref over whether Louis should be deducted points for a late hit. Above, you can see the first three rounds of the fight, which was held at Washington D.C.'s Griffith Stadium.
