Louis (Boxer Puncher) vs Patterson (swarmer/boxer) Power: Louis Speed: Close, but Patterson Chin: Louis Technique: Louis Footwork: Patterson Combinations: Even Body punching: Louis Versatility: Patterson Stamina: Even Defense: Louis Ring IQ: Louis Accuracy: Patterson Killer instinct: Louis Heart: Louis 8-2-4 advantage Louis On paper Patterson has many tools that could frustrate Louis. He is blazingly fast, has good accuracy, can get himself into the best positions for delivering power with good leverage, etc. His peak a boo skills are 2nd only to Tyson, and he's versatile enough to box at mid range. The problem is that Louis has him both outgunned in terms of power and is the better overall boxer in terms of technique. Not by an overwhelming amount, but enough that this becomes a bit of a bad matchup. Louis wasn't super durable either and could have defensive issues, but his weren't as bad as Patterson who hit the deck oodles of times and had a very suspect chin. What makes thing worse is that Patterson often fought on the front foot and pressed towards opponents--2 things that you probably don't want to do against Louis unless you have very good durability and skill. Conclusion: This fight could literally end in 1 round, the 4th, or even the 10th. It depends on the mentality of both fighters. If both come out aggressively letting their hands fly, Patterson is demolished early and painfully. If Patterson tries to be patient using his legs, getting in and out, he can make things interesting and competitive. The more cautious he is, the better his chances. But Louis is such an overwhelming presence in this matchup and has the size, power, speed, and technique to find Patterson more often than not even if he fights a cagey defensive fight. And it wouldn't take very many flush punches from Louis to drop Patterson or finish him off. Louis by KO within 5 rounds 80% of the time is my guess. It would be a very thrilling match to watch two super fast and skilled punchers clashing for however long it lasts.
