Default Re: Rocky Marciano vs Don ****ell 'Batting Practice'

Rocky Marciano, 31 year-old, 5' 11" 188 lbs., with a 67" reach
47-0-0 (41 KO's)
Nino Valdes, 31 year-old, 6' 3" 210 lbs., with an 80" reach
32-8-3 (25 KO's)

Hard to not to see Nino giving Rocky some early round trouble, and
possible shaking Rocky on several occassions.

Could see Rocky have some problems with a swollen left eye, from
several hard punches from Nino.

The bout will be 'Even' after 7-Rounds.

But, by Round 8, the body punches from Rocky would break the big Cuban down, as Nino did have some stamina issues.

Nino becomes a 'stiff tree' in Round 9, and gets his ribs crushed, and barely escapes Rocky's clubbing fists.

But, Rocky lands a 'Suzie Q' early in Round 10, to score a 'knockkout'.
