Default Re: Wladimir Klitschko vs. Rocky Marciano

Klitschko fights these guys who dont even try to win and he makes it look a chore, or at least it's a chore for me to watch. I just find it hard to imagine him in with an intense fighter like Rocky Marciano.
And any time I hear that crap about tall fighters v. short fighters "he wont even be able to reach his chin" I know it's crap. Guys a foot shorter than Valuev find his chin often, and both Klitschko brothers have been hit by guys much shorter than them too. If Rocky was just a 5'10" plodder with no strategy, no greatness and no fire in his belly then maybe that would be a valid statement but that's not the case. When you put a great fighter like Rocky in the ring with anyone you better acknowledge that he will have his moments at some point of the fight, whoever he's fighting. The thing is, with Wladimir klitschko I think Rocky's moment would spell the beginning of the end.
