In Celebration of National Joe Lewis Day, I would like to share this video I presented at the Je Lewis research Conference last October In Tampa Florida. It features rare footage of the first Knockout in full contact fighting in North America. This historic video tells the story of how Joe Lewis, who was training with Bruce Lee at the time, bucked convention and moved the sport into the future by fighting in the first full contact fight in north america against Greg Baines. The year was 1070 the event was the first US pro Team championships promoted by Lee Faulkner.
This historic event forever shaped the future of martial arts sports by, for the first time, allowing the fighters to fight to a knockout.

Happy Joe Lewis Day!
