Joe Louis Helping Henry Armstrong with Belt

Original caption: Belts for Belter Armstrong. Pompton Lakes, N.J.: Joe Louis, heavyweight ring champion, at right, helps his visitor, double champion Henry Armstrong, adjust the two belts which were awarded to him in ceremony at Louis' training camp by Ring Magazine. One of the belts was given Henry for holding three titles at the same time. Featherweight, lightweight, and welterweight-he gave up the first. The other belt is for the welterweight championship which he won from Barney Ross. Image donated by : © Bettmann/CORBIS
