    I can see Larry going through here, as he is a very popular fighter on this board .... but for me, Louis scrapes a narrow decision against Larry (and doesn't look particularly impressive doing it).

    Both fighters start fast, but soon Holmes elects to try and counterpunch his way to victory, trying to time Louis as he comes in. Joe patiently stalks Holmes and earns the points due to his hand speed in throwing short blurring shots on his way in. A flash knockdown early gives Larry hope, but Joe is remorseless and only the fabled Holmes chin allows him to see the fnal round with pride intact.

    Holmes wins, too big, and his jab too good. Probably a knockout

    It was almost a coin toss for me, but I had to go with Joe in the end.

    This is about even as one can get....IMO though Joe just pulls it out in the end...a bit stronger....and he would adjust to find some way to balance some of the effect on Larry's great jab

    Another battle of the jabs. Louis holds the edge in power. Both great technical boxers.
    Tough one again but I edge with Joe Louis on points.

    Holmes would jab his way to a decision IMO. Too big, strong and fast for ol' Joe.

    Holmes would win the exact way Conn was winning use footwork and Holmes would use his longer reach to outjab Louis and win decision Louis is too slow on his feet to beat Holmes plus his reach isn't longer enough Holmes would catch Louis with that piston left jab.

    I don't think so Louis is too slow on his feet to get to Holmes and Holmes longer reach in the jab would cause Louis alot of problems aswell.

    Until Louis was shot he always found a way to win.....IMO he would adjust.....Louis was great under pressure....Knowing how important..... The Saddo Boxing Form Greatest Heavyweight of All Time Tourney is..... IMO think he would would bring out the best in him....Like I said close but I go with Louis in the end....Holmes wins the early rounds 1-5 or 6 then once Louis adjust it's all him

    But how would he adjust in what way ?? he can't outjab Holmes he can't beat Holmes to the punch he can't dance around the ring and if he tried to be aggressor following Holmes around ring Holmes would just pick him off it seems same fighters get through finals all the time Louis and Ali but imo Louis would not beat Holmes.

    Conn was winning Louis fight hands down only reason Conn lost was because he exchanged punches with Louis Holmes wouldn't do that and even if he needed to in certain rounds Holmes has got a great chin and can hold his own in brawling department.

    Joe Louis was a great fighter, very powerful and decent speed, but he was too slow of foot and somewhat robotic. Larry Holmes too me is the most underrated heavyweight champion of all time. He would move around Joe and bust him up pretty bad with that great jab of his. Also if Larry can handle Earnie Shavers power i think he can most definitely handle Joe power. Larry by decision.
