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.
Ya but look at what Joe did to Braddock...
