Default Re: Rocky Marciano vs. Sonny Liston

Liston is the bigger, stronger man and the better boxer. He is going to be putting that big jab in Marciano`s face over and over. He also had powerful uppercuts to follow it with. Rocky`s face would be torn to ribbons by the midrounds.

If Marciano gets inside in spots Sonny is strong enough to push him off the same way Foreman pushed Frazier back. Liston is going to have about a 20+lbs weight advantage and he had uncommon strength.

Marciano was the better champion and the greater fighter but this is a bad style matchup for him.

Sonny Liston by knockout.
