Loughran is very underrated in my opinion. I'm sitting on the fence on this one right now.

Two great LHs from the old sod. I have often thought of this matchup. Tommy Loughran had 172 bouts ,and Billy Conn 76 fights ,so Loughran
was much more tested. But based on the fact that Billy Conn was more fiery and aggressive than the more defensive minded Loughran, I'll go with
Billy Conn in a 15 round majority decision. I might be wrong though...
