Default Eduardo Lausse vs. Henry Hank

10 rounds middleweights. Who and why?

You'd be a good matchmaker, d417. Both those guys could crack.

Now Robinson's a subject I can warm to.

I don't remember reading how old you are, but how do you know so much about these fighters from the '50s and early '60s?

I can't say I've seen that many tapes of Lausse and Hank.

However you arrived at this matchup, it would've been a humdinger. And in person, ringside, would have killed anyone with high blood pressure.

Absolutely. Robinson was special.

I'm 43....Getting up there a little but still punching....I just really enjoy watching the fighters from the '50's/'60's...

On Lausse/Hank tapes....quite honestly I've seen just two. Lausse/Fullmer and Hank/Tiger....Just read up on them a bit.

That's hilarious. Maybe they might have had to pass out heart defibrilators as well!! Nice talking to you a bit...

i Sure Would Pay To See That One. Lausse 62 Ko's In His 75 Wins And Hank 40 In His 62 Wins. It Would Be A Toss -up.

like The Previous Guy Said, " They Could Both Crack".

if I Had To Make A Choice, I'd Go With Lausse. He Had Fewer Losses Than Hank And Was The Harder Puncher.

Great matchup Dan!

As to who I think win, it`s hard to say really. Lausse was the bigger puncher as mentioned previously, but Henry could punch damn hard as well. Both men were extremely durable and had good stamina, although I would give the edge to Lausse in stamina as Henry did not train as hard as he should have for some of his fights due his penchant for partying. I think this fight goes the distance no matter what, and it would likely be a split decision either way.

The reason for that being that it would depend on what the judges favoured... Eduardo`s shorter, crisper punches or Henry`s high workrate and aggression. I can see Lausse countering and playing the matador to Hank`s aggression and pressure, and this would likely have made it a difficult fight to score. Either way, this would have been sheer violence and I would have definately gotten a seat ringside for it. One thing is for sure and that is that they don`t make em` like these two anymore...

Lausse SD Hank, although Henry would win at least one or two in a series of fights between them.

Thanks, Craig
Always enjoy your insights and analysis on these match ups. I'm beginning to appreciate fighters like Lausse/Hank more and more...They were special back in the day.
