Default 1st Round - 140 Pound Tourney - Jimmy McLarnin vs. Ted Kid Lewis

15 rounds, who takes it?

If you don't give a reason for your opinion, your opinion will only carry half a vote.

Lewis because he was a monster.

A huge huge man who mostly fought his career at Welterweight and even later on fighting at Light Heavy.

He man handle McLarnin in the ring. Inside Outside wherever.

Lewis TKO 13

Hard to see McLarnin getting stopped, he could take a HELL of a lot of punishment, had one of the best chins ever. But likely you're right Bop, Lewis will be too big and will boss him around. I definitely think it will be competitive the whole way through though.

Lewis by decision, more or less close.

Yeah I went for TKO from to many shots inside to the body. McLarnin had some quality wins but yeah Lewis was tough and so so big. Not much footage on either guy yeah. well not from what ive seen.Or not seen.

Gut feeling, I think McLarnin takes a squeaker of a 15 round decision fought over a frenetic pace. I think it would be highly entertaining but think both would be able to handle either's blows over the distance.

This fight is "pick your favourite". More or harder? They are made for each other but unmoveable as far as one another's style goes peak for peak. I'll pick McLarnin on points.

This fight would be an absolute war, I think Lewis was the bigger man and harder hitter which would make a big difference at the end. Lewis stops McLarnin late probably 14 or 15.

McLarnin for me, Lewis can win though, most definitely. Lewis' workrate could get him it, but McLarnin imo is slightly better, but theres literally nothin in it. McLarnin's big shots can take a toll that enable him to JUST squeak home in the late part of the bout imo.

I like Lewis in a tough, tough battle. I think his size would wear McLarnin down a bit. Lewis UD 15.
