Default Re: Rocky Marciano vs Joe Louis

By the time they fought in 1951, Louis had clearly lost most of his reflexes, hand eye coordination, stamina, punch resistance, etc. He still managed to give Rocky 8 rounds, and from what I've heard ( never saw the fight ) even stole a round or two. given that his best hears were arguably from like 1937-1942, he was a decade past his best. That said I think a fully charged Joe Louis would have had an excellent chance of taking this. I picked him by stoppage, but Rocky's style and power would still give him problems.
