Speed, jab, and ring generalship. Those are the main attributes that Holmes has over Louis. Mind I'm not saying Holmes was light years ahead of Louis in those areas, but when averaging everything out Holmes was more complete across the board.

Ive seen many Louis fights. Schemling I and II, Braddock, Galento, Conn, and many others. Also clips of some, but not the full fights. Not sure many people have Louis' entire career collection on DVD, unlike the access available to Ali and Holmes fights. But I feel Ive seen enough of Louis to make a fair comparison.

Not seen Page v Snipes. I have a couple of thousand fights, but unfortunately thats one that aint in my collection.
