It was more than a boxing match. German Schmeling travelled with a Nazi party publicist who was allegedy responsible for the newspaper reports that suggested a black man could not defeat Schmeling and that his purse from the fight would be used by the German army to build more tanks. The fight lasted a mere 124 seconds. But it's outcome would live forever. This rematch bout between them served as the pinnacle of Louis' career and is remembered as one of the major sports events of the 20th century.
