So Marciano's superior speed and defense ( clearly superior to Patterson's ) would make the difference … Maybe if Sunny had Kryptonite in his trunks he would defeat the man whose fanatical followers believe defies all logic and would beat a bigger, stronger, harder hitting fighter with a far longer reach, a stylistic advantage and a far faster started ..
My only question ? What color was Rocky's cape ?
