Silly reasoning

I could say that Louis was a sucker for a right hand...and if Braddock could deck him then the bigger, faster, better Holmes would finish him but I wouldn't cos it's silly.

I think Holmes takes a UD, by playing it smart, staying on the outside using his superior speed, reach and footwork to basically jab his way to victory although it would obviously be much more than that. I think the fight would probably be a bit of stinker bar a few moments here and there with Holmes constantly pumping the jab and 1-2 then moving while Louis plods in and tries to counter. Holmes has too much smarts and grit to be KO'd, I'd bet more money on Louis being stopped than Holmes.
