Default Re: Macriano Vs Dempsey

If Dempsey was unable to KO or TKO Rocky he could easily change his tactics and box his way to a decision if he had to. Both fighters were durable, Marciano slightly more so, but Dempsey was tough enough to last if it did wind up going the distance. Dempsey also had great stamina and was more than capable of going 15 good rounds in his prime, as he did so against Tommy Gibbons after a two year lay off when he was past it. And, while Rocky had a better right cross, Dempsey's left hook was superior to Marciano's. Anyway, I honestly don't think this fight would go past the mid rounds.
