Prime for prime. The Schmeling who stopped Louis vs the Johannson that stopped Patterson
Der Max tko's Ingo.
Schmeling beats the #### out of Johansson. Max by KO
Max would pummel Ingo to a 10 round defeat .Ingo attempts to take him out but Schmeling to crafty and jabs the Swede constantly .Max ,well in front stops him with a series of over hand right s that blast him to the canvas.
Max by ko
Good battle of right hands,initially,but Max being the better boxer altogether outboxes and stops Ingemar before the tenth.
Max > Ingo
That sounds like a probable scenario.
I just thought of something and you seem pretty knowledgeable on these things.....in 1936, was Max considered "prime" or did he happen to get a great win while past it?
Ingo's jab was underrated; it set up the Bingo.
He was certainly past his best; during his reign as world champion was likely his peak (1930 - 1932).
He seemed to paw more with it
Schmeling was here a bit similar as Kessler, who was on the slide against Ward and Froch (actually since Perdomo).
I rate Ingo a bit higher than most, but I think Schmeling takes this comfortably.
Probably a dull fight with both guys trying to time the right hand. Schmeling was the better boxer and when they do exchange he would get better of it. Decision Max with chance of late stoppage
