Monument to Joe Louis

Saves: 20
Check-ins: 18
Boxer Joe Louis's heavyweight punch is memorialized in bronze. It was commissioned by Sports Illustrated in 1986 and sculpted by Robert Graham. It symbolizes not only the Alabama-born boxer's strength inside the ring, but his dedication to fighting Jim Crow laws that were prevalent in his era. (Submitted by Rajie Brown)
