Louis-Conn I... and the new Heavyweight Champ!

Not too sure, but also Dempsey's title defense against Brennan.

And if Jack Johnson had made it a 15 rounder against Willard.

Tyson-Ruddock II.

Judging by the final 3 rounds, i think Tyson would've stopped Razor if it was 15 rounds.

Leonard vs Hearns I (if it was changed to 12 rounds).

I can't be 100% sure of this though. Leonard would definitely changed gears much earlier if it was a 12 rounder. Wonder how a less-tired Hearns would've responded.

Of course, all fights in this scenario are going to have this factor...

A potentially big one (long term) Tate/Weaver...

If the number of rounds in these fights changes, then the fighters involved would fight them completely differently.

It is frankly futile to speculate.

If there were 15 instead of 12, Hopkins would've probably stopped Taylor and there probably wouldn't have been a rematch.

Excellent point but I'm going to play along anyway.

Trinidad-DelaHoya

Most fights these days, actually.

If we had 15 rounders still, we'd see alot less million-dollar sparring matches and fights where, at the end, the guys look like they just did 2 rounds on the mitts- not breathing heavy, not tired, not marked up, etc...
