Default Re: Wladimir Klitschko vs. Rocky Marciano

I see no reason why Rocky would not reach Wlads less than iron chin encased in his not so courageous body. Wlad is certainly there to be hit and Marciano s going to look quick in comparison. Everyone knows the toughness that Marciano possessed and we also know what happens when Wlad gets cracked. Eventually Marciano hits him on the chin....more than likely Rocky could take rounds of punishment if need be but along the way he is going to land..... Don't see Wad with his poor history taking punishment not going down in sections. If you think for a second that Purity, Brewster etc could ko Wlad but Rocky Marciano could not your fooling yourself.
the fight would never even be sanctioned such is the scale of the mismatch.
