Default Re: Rocky Marciano vs. Muhammad Ali

I like both fighters but styilistically I'd favor Rocky in this matchup. Ali would control the fight for a few rounds with his superior handspeed but by the mid rounds, Rock would have figured him out and consistantly slipped Ali's jab and continuesly worked his way inside and worked Ali with hard bodypunches in attempt to take his legs away and Rock's stamina, workrate and pressure win a razor thin decision. Probably as close as 8-7

Ali moves too well to find himself along the ropes taking too many punches..but he may get dropped by a big right hand somewhere in the fight but of course, would get up and finish the fight. Ali's handspeed and sharp punching would probably slice up Rocks face.
