Default Re: Rocky Marciano vs. Sonny Liston

Rocky is a great talent pound for pound. Probably better than Liston in that regard.

However I don't see him outjabbing Liston so he has to get inside and once there can he really be expected to successfully trade punches with a a man 20 pounds heavier? I say no.

I'm not sure Liston stops Rocky, but I can't see Rocky winning enough rounds.

In a finish fight I think Rocky's resolve would pay off and see him victorious but given a limit of 15 rounds I have to favour Sonny.
