Default Re: Wladimir Klitschko vs. Rocky Marciano

For the record...

Rocky has little chance. For all his stamina and durability against smaller, older elite fighters, a prime Wlad would be dishing out too much and demand too high a price for Marciano to close the distance. And please, stop with the Marciano was hard to hit. Marciano was harder to hit than he seemed but still ate tons of leather.

I think Wlad has the right combination of assets to dissuade and ultimately stop Frazier. Too strong, too good of footwork, too powerful.

Conversely, Tyson has more in his arsenal and could get to Wlad, much faster at closing the distance and getting into his preferred range. Still, if he doesn't finish the task in 5, the tables turn.

Ali, no question. Just too much.
