Louis vs Galento 1939 On June 28, 1939 Joe Louis defended his world heavyweight title aginst Tony Galento. Two-Ton Tony was a 9-1 betting underdog--for good reason. His physique was more suited to a pie-eating champion than a heavyweight boxing contender. He had a pretty decent left hook and not much else. Nevertheless, Tony put up a decent showing against Louis. Galento even managed to score a flash knockdown in the third round before he himself was knocked out in round four.

''I'll moydah duh bum, I'll moydah duh bum''.

Two Ton Tony made the mistake of tangling with a boxing bear who smashed his skull about 4 weeks before this match. Then, like Joe Namath did a few years later, he was seen drinking martinis on the Jersey shore with a few cute ladies when he should have been in training.

A few punches to the gut rather than head hunting could have helped the sappy Jersey fat boy. But strategy and brains wasn't what he was noted for.
