Henry Armstrong and Joe Louis

Original caption: Uh, Uh, Hank - He's a Bit Too Big. Pompton Lakes, New Jersey: Henry Armstrong, who holds the world's featherweight and welterweight crowns and who is now pointing for Lou Ambers' lightweight crown, squares off with heavyweight champion, Joe Louis. We are afraid that Louis is too big even for fearless Henry. Armstrong visited Louis at his training camp here recently. Louis is training for the defense of his title against Max Schmeling, former champ.
