    I think Max KOs him

    I think it's 50/50 but Baer's better chin may be the difference.

    I would think Morrison could hurt Max , but Baer battles through to stop him .

    Morrison could easily knock him out clean with a single monster hook being the loser until this point

    I think Morrison was a much more scientific and skilled fighter than baer, but equal power, Baers cast iron chin may make all the difference in the world here since Morrison had a glass chin. Either max by k.o. or t.k.o. or tommy on points

    Baer did not have "iron" chin. He had a good one but he got stopped badly by louis in only 4 rounds

    Hm, I will go with Morrison on points. Boxing like he did Foreman instead of trying to bang with Max knowing his reputation.

    Baer quit ,fully conscious against Louis.
    "Nobody took it like Max Baer".Joe Louis.

    Morrison could actually box.

    Baer ... not so much.

    I'd favour Morrison with the caveat that Baer could take it and Tommy couldn't.

    Morrison was more orthodox but Baer was more skilled.
    Morrison gets crushed.

    In what respect was Baer, in your opinion, more skilled than Morrison in? I'm genuinely curious to know.

    baer would knock the HIV smack right out of Tommy. Morrison has faced nothing like him and persevered.
