Default Billy Conn vs Tommy Loughran

I was wondering who you think would win between these two at 175lbs. Niether guy has great power but they both achieved a lot they match up fairly equally in height, reach and chin. Who wins and why?

I think Billy edges Tommy in a close 15 rounder.

I'd take Billy by decision as well. I think Billy would be more aggressive and though he didn't have real ko power he could hurt you with his left. From what I've read Tommy L. had such fragile hands he was always afraid to let loose.

Pickem fight Conn had a little more pop on his shots,and maybe was faster afoot,Loughran ,the more classical stylist with an imacculate left jab ,but fragile hands,the two master boxers of the LH,s.
