    Smart and methodical Max slowly takes him apart and knocks him out

    Max outsmarts Lord Preem and slowly takes him apart with traps and counters with his right. Carnera hangs tough but is slowly beaten down and stopped around the 11th

    Carnera's jab gives some issues and presents some difficulties for Maxie but starts to give him more to counter with his right.

    Schmeling wins but not without difficulty. Carnera boxes carefully and holds/mauls inside. However Max as he did with Louis continues to measure his opponent. Carnera is ahead mid fight as Schmelings power starts to dominate hurting Primo. Fight begins to be a gradual beat down as Max starts landing his right with regularity. Round 12 Primo is stopped with the bout even in terms of rounds won at that time.

    Has everyone seen this doc on Max Schmeling? If you do watch it, you'll see why a Primo Carnera would/could never beat Schmeling.

    It really is a joke to me how highly people overestimate how good Carnera supposedly was.

    I'd favor Schmeling via UD for his skillset, but I wouldn't bet on it

    Historical boxing revisionism at it's worst...along the lines of making Muhammad Ali into a devastating puncher,...and yet maintaining what a weak chin Joe Frazier had....you can't have both, like fresh and salty water coming from the same stream...unless you're a historical boxing revisionist, of course.

    50/50. Schmeling had the tools to beat Carnera and was very skilled, but Schmeling wasn't a very consistent fighter, since he was very hot and cold. Schmeling also had a bad habit of taking off rounds, which could cost him against Carnera and result in him walking into a fight ending uppercut.

    Or making Schmeling into some kind of brilliant, highly-skilled ring genius...

    No one is saying that...there's no evidence of that here in this forum anyway....but that video I posted reveals that Schmeling's skills set in that 1st Louis fight was quite impressive, and far beyond what some fans may have thought who were dependent only on relatively primitive b/w films of the late 20's and early 30's.

    Incidentally this fight almost happened while Schmeling was champion.

    In that time frame, it takes place slightly before Carnera's prime, which obviously favors Schmeling.
