I fancy Louis to get to Rocky and take him out around the 8th, walking on to Louis is a bad idea, no matter how solid your chin is.

Louis said he could not beat Marciano, because he did not like to be crowded. Louis like many boxer puncher's was at his best when he had space. It should be noted that Louis had some trouble in the first fight with Godoy's crouching style.


Marciano not only had a crouching style, he liked to fight up close, threw many punches, and hit hard.
