Default Re: Rocky Marciano vs. Sonny Liston

Very hard to call this one, but I'm leaning towards Marciano by decision or late-round TKO.

Marciano's problem is that his record looks too good to be true. So, a lot of time is spent on taking it apart. The truth is, you can take anyone's record and make it look bad - even Ali's.

A lot of this match will take place on the inside. Here, Sonny's long arms would be a disadvantage compared to Marciano's T-rex paws. We know both hit like a truck and take a good shot. Rocky has more stamina and heart. Takes a beating and keeps on ticking.

It's a tough one, but I'm going with the wolf in sheep's clothes from the Greater Boston area.
