Jim Braddock: I believe we live in a great country... a country that's great enough to help a man financially when he's in trouble. But lately, I've had some good fortune, and I'm back in the black. I just thought I should return it.

Two years later Jim Braddock put his title on the line against Joe Louis. Jim knocked him down in the first round, though Louis went on to win the bout. Joe Louis would always call Jim Braddock the most courageous man he ever fought. ... Jim served honorably in World War II... He later owned and operated heavy equipment on the same docks where he labored during the Great Depression.... In the early 1960's he helped build the Verrazano Bridge... Jim and Mae bought a house in New Jersey with the winnings from the Baer fight. They raised their children in that house and lived there for the rest of their lives.
