Default Re: Wladimir Klitschko vs. Rocky Marciano

After watching Johnathan Banks dispatch the mighty muscled Seth Mitchell and would love to see how the svelt Ezzard Charles with a few more lbs of muscle would do these days

Don't get me wrong I am a big fan of the Klitschko's and I think Vlad has improved with each fight. I think he displayed a great variety of punches vs Wach, it was a showcase fight. The Klitschko's are also very fit but in a 15 round fight fought at a fast pace I can see an ATG like Marciano making him work and Marciano's power, Walcott KO (right hand) Layne KO (Layne proved to be tough chinned before this) some of the Moore battery, can not be discounted...this is a very tough fight for Vlad despite his size and it only takes one snowball to start an avalanche, another question is it 12 or 15 rounds
Wlad has little in common with Helenius, who won wide anyway, and Seth Mitchell. Mitchell is also a lot shorter than Wlad and Banks is bigger than Marciano. I question Marciano's ability to get full power on a head shot against Wlad. I can't see him ever connecting with that short right.
