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.
The most memorable part of Page/Snipes was when Greg swelled up Renaldo's eye, and then loud heckling from the audience could be heard. "Yo, Adriaaan!....Yo, Aaaadriaaaaan!," courtesy of Hector Camacho and friend.
