    Tyson vs Joe Louis

    Could Mike walk thru Louis?

    From what I have watched, It seems more likely to me that Mike would get to Joe and take him apart in pieces over the rounds, than joe would get to Mike. It just seems to me that Mike is stronger, and more powerful

    I like Louis. Big.

    Nothing telegraphed. lots of snap from both hands. And the superior corner which comes into play in this---I see Blackburn having no problems solving the D'Amato defense.

    Modern vs old, generations apart, styles grow.

    Tyson TKO1. Unless Louis can catch him early while Tyson is rushing in.

    Tyson is going to be walking onto Louis's punches, and that is going to be a big advantage for Louis.

    Louis is going to create a carefully prepared killing ground, and let Tyson walk into it.

    He is going to back up just enough, to keep him doing it, and if an exchange is not to his taste, then he will spin Tyson.

    Both men come with a plan, and both know that they need to give it their all.

    At some point it comes down to who wants it more, and Louis ant's it a bit more.

    Tyson is unbeatable in matches that never happened.

    you are right of course. Joe has neither the mobility or the durability to come thru unscathed.

    His defense is not quick enough and he WILL get caught. and he will get hurt and once hrt, Mike will do to him what he did to Spinks, Holmes, Williams, Frazier...

    Anyone denying this is not being realistic

    This. Mike couldn't handle those incredible combinations. He might make it 10 rounds.

    But very beatable, in matches that did happen.

    60/40 matchup. I'm favouring Tyson via KO.
