    An online sports site called New Arena recently ranked the greatest athlete of all time from each state. Four Boxers made the list.

    Colorado-Jack Dempsey
    Kentucky-Ali
    Massachusetts-Rocky Marciano
    South Carolina-Joe Frazier

    Sugar Ray Robinson was born in Georgia and Georgia's greatest athlete was deemed to be Jim Brown.
    Joe Louis was born in Alabama and Alabama's greatest athlete was Bo Jackson.

    bo jackson i agree with....joe louis was incredible but bo jackson was incrredible

    never looked into it....i always thought and assumed louis was from detroit.

    maybe because of joe louis arena and the huge fist?

    It was where the athlete was born.
    Agree with you about Bo Jackson, best athlete I've seen in my lifetime. Yes Louis was synonymous with Detroit as his family moved there when he was young. There is also a big statue of Louis in his birthplace in Alabama.
