After that, I think Dempsey would control the early rounds with his bob and weave style, but eventually the Rock's superior stamina and will would kick in and stop Dempsey late in the fight 13/14. Eventually, I just feel Marciano's punch output would overwhelm him.
It's not a knock on Dempsey, I just feel Marciano was the greatest conditioned hw of all-time. See the 15th round of Marciano-Charles I; he's just winging shots from all angles the entire friggin round.
Again with this ****? Dempsey had more than enough stamina to stay live the whole fight and the damage Rocky would take early on would have a serious effect if (IF) Dempsey was unable to TKO him mid round. With your logic you could argue that Marciano would beat anybody, which is bull****, obviously. You speak as though Dempsey had a serious issue with fading down the stretch, which he didn't.
