The hypotheticals about how he'd do against a puncher like a Foreman or Tyson have to remina just that, hypotheticals. In terms of what Marciano was able to do at the time, he clearly had some real rock in that chin and I judge him on that.
Now, TKOing Marciano due to facial damage...that could be possible.
Knocking him out cold, I severely doubt anyone does that.
Getting hit by Foreman is not a good thing but Foreman getting hit by a puncher of Marciano's quality is not a good thing either,could Foreman take that punch?
