Default Re: Rocky Marciano vs. Sonny Liston

I think Rocky is durable enough to absorb whatever Liston throws his way, and strong enough to earn his respect. I see Liston controling the first 3 rounds or so (although not dominating) possibly even scoring an early KD along the way. Rocky around rounds 4-5 closes the distance and turns this into an inside fight and begins to even the fight up and turning it into a war of attrition. Rocky begins to take control around rounds 7-8 and a weary Liston seeing his lead disappear goes all out to end it in the 9-10th rounds and gets caught wide open....Rocky by KO 9-10
