I met Joe Louis at Little Willie Adams' house

July 03, 2011

I was sorry to hear that William Lloyd "Little Willie" Adams had passed away. Years ago, my friend Elliott Klupt, who lived next door to Mr. Adams, and I were invited over to meet Joe Louis, who was staying at his home before a fight. We were about 12 years old, and Mr. Louis was in the basement practicing his punching. That was a special time in my life.
