Arguable. Norton, Witherspoon, Weaver, Cooney, Mercer, McCall, Holyfield, and Smith would all at the very least hold their own in Louis's era and I think they'd all have a decent chance at decking Joe. Louis was dropped by guys who had no business dropping the all time #1 heavyweight.

I rank Louis #1 of all time, but head to head I think he falls short against prime Ali, Foreman, Holmes, Tyson, and Marciano. Frazier would be a toss up imo.

There would be far too much respect for a KO. Louis to edge a mighty fine decision.

Right.... Because Holmes had stamina problems and was known for gassing out mid-rounds...


Reality check: This probably goes to a decision, and probably in Holmes' favor.

I could go with either guy winning in any fashion, but the most likely outcome is Holmes by decision.

Holmes boxes Louis' ears off. Possible late stoppage for Holmes.
