Default Re: Joe Louis Vs. Larry Holmes, Someome is gettin KO'd for sure.

Louis wins a close decision in an exciting yet tactical fight, maybe knocking Holmes down once or twice.

Both have their respective Achilles's heels (Holmes has the intelligent motion to frustrate Louis and Louis has the great fight hand & great jab to land on Holmes) but I pick Louis, largely because I think their handspeed was similar but Louis's power would mean he landed the more impressive blows.

They're two of my favourite heavyweights and both in my top 5, so it's a hard one of me to call.
