Short,entertaining bout. Louis by KO in the first 3 rounds. Might get shaken a few times though. Be interested to see how Tuas chin holds out though.

Tua would get beaten down and it would be about as edifying to watch as a public execution.

Come on people, Tua shouldnt even be mentioned on the same piece of paper as Joe Louis. He has a decent chin but the referee would stop this massacre within the first 4 rounds as Louis hits him with shots from all angles. If Tua miraculasly manages to land a big punch Louis gets up and whips him even more violently.

Let's not get carried away. Tua may not have accomplished nearly as much as Louis, but you can't let that take away from the attributes than an animal like Tua possesses.

Tua KOs Louis inside of 2 rounds.

A left hook a good chin and a funny haircut?

Why should any fighter in history be able to do that?

Louis was only ever taken out after a sustained beating.

A left hook that would plaster Louis when he connected with it.

A sustained beating at the hands of a fighter who was never a huge puncher to begin with.

My thoughts exactly. I dont care what your chins like-Louis wasn't just a huge hitter, he was also so precise with his combinations. Louis knocked out bigger fighters than Tua.
I do rate Tua as a pretty decent heavy though, he'd give Joe a good fight for as long as it lasted.

Sorry but the man is so overated on these boards. Tua looked good against the likes of John Ruiz but as soon as he stepped up to the next level against a great fighter like Lennox Lewis he got his ass handed to him. If he had fought Tyson , even though Mike at the time was a shadow of his prime self, he would have taken a sound beating. I am not disputing that he was a terrific power puncher and his chin is very good but he lacks the ring prowess and intelligence to even contemplate being competitive with a master such as Joe Louis, who i think is also overated by the way but still a complete league above David bloody Tua.

Lewis had significant advantages against David Tua, and he also respected the **** out of his power. I'm sorry, but I just don't believe Louis was a " master " like people say. I don't think his offense would be enough to keep Tua off of him, and Louis had only a decent defense at best. I think Tua overwhelms Louis with his sheer power and punch resistance.

Louis by a serious Ko, I think and early Ko, remeber Savon KO'd Tua in 1 round, Louis would give him DeJaVu

I'm referring to Schmeling. And no, I don't believe Marciano possessed the power of Tua.
