Travis would have to bring his A game...I think he'd win lefty but right handed is a different story...if the same travis that just lost to Georgie goes against Denis I think he'll have the same result as when he faced Georgie.

I think Travis would have to come in and be 100% prepared. He is very good at getting in someones head. Denis would not know how to handle Travis. I feel with the experience that Travis has that he would win with either hand.

Personally from what I have seen of Denis currently he is PLENTY STRONG enough.......................
NOT CLOSE to well rounded enough technically to stop Travis.
I think that Travis gives Denis "THE PRISON EXPERIENCE" on both Arms at this stage........
WAY TOO MUCH BACK PRESSURE
TOO HORRIBLE ;D
ps. having said that IF the match ever happened in Europe it could potentially be 6 - 0 Denis....as Travis would probably NEEDLESSLY SELF F*CK himself & loose on a Multiple Foul Out Trainwreckathon !!!
NEVER has such an exceptionally talented Puller apparently been so keen to self sacrifice his opportunity to win Big matches impressively, whilst doing himself & the sport a World of good in the process.
Travis is an extremely charasmatic & talented Armwrestler, I personally would love to see him mature in his overall demeanour, style and approach at the table and come back into the BIG MATCH Armwrestling scene with a Bang as he could be GREAT for Armwrestling, himself and his family when he is at his best.
Travis is very marketable, he is actually a really nice and very intelligent lad and would be great for TV............who knows whether he will realize his potential, for his own sake and the sake of Armwrestling, I really hope he does
IF Travis is calm, prepared & settled he is extremely capable of giving ANYONE a very difficult time in my opinion...........
I just need to secretly Tranquilliser Dart the Big Bastard in the Ass the next time he is in a Big Match ;D ;D
I would take Travis both arms. Georgie is very adept at getting inside and is a veteran puller. He is hard to keep out of a hook and often doesn't get enough credit for his technical ability on the table. Denis would have a very hard time getting Travis inside right handed, regardless of whether or not he is stronger than Georgie.
Also I think you can take some of Neil's sentiments and direct them toward Georgie. If he would get his head right he would absolutely turn the international stage on its ear. I would love to see Georgi and Dima pull a left handed supermatch at 95kg. That would be the BALLS!!

Seeing how I believe I maybe one of 3 people (I think Pushkar MIGHT have pulled Travis left, MAYBE NOT, and Sermerenko has) that has pulled both Travis and Denis LEFT handed IN A TOURNAMENT....My prediction LEFT only, would be Travis!.......Others I "believe" can PEEL Denis' hand and beat him: Ryan Espey and Eric Woerfel!!!!!
