We're well into Black History Month, so it is fitting to mention that Max Schmeling, the German boxer who famously lost to Joe Louis during the Nazi 30s, has died at the age of 99. Mr Schmeling apparently later became good friends with Mr Louis, and seemed mindful of his important place in history.

That was some cool boxing. Talk about a Rocky moment!
