Default Walcott vs Schmeling

Some of Louis's rep rests on beating Max. If Walcott can overcome prime Max, he can be placed better on lists.

I do not know what Max has that can beat Jersey Joe. He has height and maybe a few pounds. His plodding ways seem made for Walcott, who I envision having a counterpunching field day. If Max lands his right it will not have the devastating effect of Marciano's and should serve to wake Joe back up rather than put him out for five minutes.

Wouldn't say Walcott would have a counter punching field day at all seeing as Max was primarily a counter puncher himself, a 'boring' fight between 2 brilliant boxers although I can only see Walcott winning the decision really.

I think Joe dispatches Patterson and Johannsen too.

Wouldn't put any money on him beating Patterson, he beats Johannsen though no doubt.

I believe Walcott's style would especially be bad on Schmelling who would be the more stationary fighter unless Max could read him to beat him to the punch with that right hand the way Marciano finally did. But Marciano's pressure is what put him into position for it.

I am not convinced Marciano read anything. He landed a big punch against a tiring fighter, which happens all the time. Maybe he did, maybe he didn't. Before I could suscribe to the notion I would need some pretty good evidence.

Schmeling would beat Walcott, I saw by Ko or TKO, he had the power to do it. and I would rank him a few spots above Walcott all time.
Walcott definitely beats Johanson, and probably TKO's Floyd as well.

Because he had a one-of-a-kind style, I love to watch Walcott. I think I posted a link to a YouTube video made expressly to show his footwork and overall rhythm. There will not be another Walcott. There is no fighter in history whose style much resembles his. I can name fighters whose style resembles Dempsey's or Hatton's or Robinson's. But who resembled Walcott? I think he is the least resembled fighter in boxing history.
