1. Your Scorecard?

2. Your thoughts on this fight?

3. Would Louis have done better in a rematch in 1951?

A one sided affair. Charles made an older Louis look slow engaging him toe to toe at times and beating Louis to the punch. Louis was stunned a few times, but never in danger of going down. Afterwards Louis face was a mess. In other fights with vs. good boxers with speed, Louis power bailed him out ( Conn, and Walcott ).

For whatever reason, Louis lost his power in the late stages of his career, so he was pretty much a punching bag in this fight.

I never scored it, but based on what I saw Louis won no more than 4 rounds. You could say 13-2.

And Charles face wasn't? I think the damage on Charles' face was worse.
