Actually I could even see Louis stopping or knocking out Holmes courtesy of his vicious body punching. No one has an invincible body. Louis was one of the best inside fighters the division has seen as well as one of the greatest finishers. To beat Louis you needed to be either a big puncher with a steel chin, a phenomenal counter puncher, or a dancer/runner. Holmes was just all around very good but even his jab (the best thing Holmes had going for him IMO) was slower and worse than Louis's.
