I don't blame Schmelling; the political pressure must have been super intense and he had the bravery to get in the ring.....which is far more than most men. But Schmelling froze in a similar manner to Spinks or Seldon against Tyson or Golota against Lewis.

Its far more impressive to see Louis win against a live opponent who actually turned up to win and demonstrated a desire and competence in attempting just that......
While I don't personally agree, that is an interesting take on that fight.
