Marciano is a better fighter than Haye, more awkward, harder to hit, way more heart, much better chin, much harder puncher with a workrate and stamina that would any of todays heavyweights blush. Even an old Mormeck who was chinny and never particularly good went 4 rounds but somehow Marciano is gonna get taken out in 2? Fuuuuuarrrrkkkkk offff.
Haye fights nothing like Marciano. That's why he was able to go the distance. Or are you suggesting that Marciano would do what Haye did? I'd say he couldn't if he wanted to. And Marciano is not better than Haye at everything. Marciano is definitely NOT harder to hit from the outside. Haye also has better hand speed and foot speed. I don't think Marciano is a harder puncher than Haye either, probably the other way around.
