Have you ever seen a fight where some game ******* climbs all over the better skilled fighter, smothers and frustrates him? It stops the better skilled fighter doing what he wants to do and brings him down a level.
Happens quite a lot, often the game ******* loses eventualy, sometimes he gets the moral victory if not the win itself. Tough *******s of even the lowest level often can really maul inside and are hard to tag on the way in.
Marciano is that game ******* only he has two handed power and proven at ATG level. Being a game ******* is only the least of what Rocky is. IMO even that side of Marciano takes a lot of what sonny is away.
All I am saying is Marciano was awkward to fight and a great fighter. He was hard to hit and is a match for Liston because he is so awkward, fearless and proven.
I also find it refreshing that this fantasy match up is closer this time around.
