    The only man to beat Louis before Joe was forced into a comeback due to Uncle Sam's tax bill.

    The word "legend" is bandied about til it's almost meaningless, but Schmeling certainly qualifies. A noble, principled man.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
