Holmes probably has as good of a chance or better to stop Louis (as much as I hate to say it)...Holmes would captilize on anything not corrected from Schmeling I, but Louis's under rated footwork, and brilliant use of feints in closing the distance dictated by Holmes jab should be enough to discourage holmes from going all out....

Your scenerio is plausible to me only if!!!!!! Louis rocks Holmes, and Holmes who had a tendancy from time to time to engage in heavier exchange (when he would have been better suited tom out box his opponent)....then your scenerio would come to fruition...and I would still be at a loss to tell you who would come out of it worse for the wear....

It is possible, again I just don't find it to be among the most likely scenerios....

I will take Louis 9-6 over 15.
