This is one fight wherer I can honestly say that I don't know how it would play out.

On a side note Schmeling would take Wlad apart.

Schmeling Carnera could have happened.

Was Carnera too big?

Carnera's bigness isn't the factor here.

Bowe was too big AND too good.

Bowe was far more talented than carnera, who was basically a lumbering oaf.

I would be rooting for Schmeling..BOWE was an overrated oaf...one great fight or maybe two against one man, who beat HIM in Holyfield...no fights against Tyson, or Lewis (who would have destroyed him).

Schmeling was an excellent technician and a man who proved to be more than dangerous at times, as a young unsuspecting Joe Louis found out. I do however feel that Riddick Bowe at the peak of his powers would likely be too much for even the sharpest version of Schmeling.

Bowe was not the most scientific fighter that ever lived, but he also wasn't just some over grown big body who had no skills. This was not Nikolay Valuev that we're talking about. Bowe had a very good infighting game, and a very strong arsenal from both up close and from a distance. He could punch reasonably hard, had a good work rate, could tie a man up, and either get you out early or take it to the cards. He was also in a few wars during his career.

His defense was somewhat weak, but he had a chin that compensated for a lot of it. Max baer was similar in this respect, yet was more crude than Bowe and nowhere near as big. Nevertheless, he stopped Max. I think Bowe would do the same thing, only sooner.

People forget what a great attacking fighter Bowe was in the early 90's .. He would beat Schmelling. Bowe only has a problem against attacking fighters with power, because Bowe was always open to shots ..

Bowe took a pretty decent punch but he was easy to hit may be a problem against Max who could be a sharp shooter, I see him hurting Bowe but I think he takes a decision.

Why do people keep making threads about true heavyweights fighting 190 pound cruiserweights and still say the cruiserweight sized fighter would win? Are you people on drugs? Give me a damn break, there are weight classes for a reason. Bowe would crush Schmeling in a round just like Louis did.

I think at the very least, Bowe could wear Schmeling out the way Baer did.

Bowe but only beacuse of the size difference coupled with the skills he did have.

Bowe wins a decision but gets hit more then he should have.
