Someone who knows what happened. Kudos. Punches don't do what happened to Rock's nose. Definitely an elbow.

My take. Rock lands to the body and slows Ali down over the course of the fight, but loses a decision. He would have a hard time landing punches upstairs. I think the body work would win Rock a few rounds and wear Ali down. That's it.

Anyone thinking Ali wins 15-0 and is perfectly intact with no marks, bruises, pain, etc is just naive. Rock would do damage.
