Quickest Knockout Ever
Known In Battle Of
Joe Louis, the 24-year-old 'Colored
boy from Alabama, made pugilistic
history at the Yankee Stadium in
New York Wednesday night, when
he knocked out the German, Max
Schmeling, in two minutes and four
seconds, and kept the boxing champ
ionship of the world in the United
Joe Louis bested Jack Dempsey's
record, made at the Polo grounds in
New York in September, 1923, when
Dempsey flattened Luis Angel Fir
po in three minutes and fifty-stven
Schmeling, a picture of confidence
beforehand and favored by many to
become the first ex-champibn in
history to regain the heavyweight
crown, never had a chance after the
bell rang for the first round.
The .champion took command on
the first exchange, belted Schmel
ing unmercifully about the head,
and quickly had the German in dis
tress. Max was on the verge of go
ing down within the first minute,
but covered and hung grimly to the
ropes, near his own corner, as he
tried desperately to save hirnself.
Finally forced into the open,
Schmeling went down on his side,
with a rolling motion, after being
clipped with a hard right to the
head. He struggled to his feet, aft
er only three seconds, only to meet
another withering blast.
On the second knockdown,
Schmeling sprawled to all fours,
after Louis fired both hands to his
jaw. The German's eyes were glas
sy, his mouth open, but his courage
somehow pulled him back to his
feet, after a count of only one.
Hard Right Enda Bout
Referee Arthur Donovan, rushing
between the two as he waved Louis
aside, grabbed Schmeling's gloves
to wipe them on his shirt, then
stepped aside. Panther-like, measur
ing his man, Louis stepped in quick
ly to deliver the finishing piyich.
His right shot out, landed heavily
on Schmeling's jaw, and the Ger
man went down for the last time.
Max rolled over on his side, in
stinctively trying to regain his
feet, but there wasn't a chance he
could do so. At the count of eight,
Mack Machon. Schmeling's trainer,
tossed the towel into the ring and
quickly followed it as he rushed to
the aid of the beaten man.
It was thus a technical knockout
victory for the champion but it
hardly could have been more dev
astating or complete.
