By all accounts Rocky also has the edge in power and chin. He had more impressive KO's over strong opposition (say what you will of the age of Louis, Walcott, Charles and Moore - they absolutely shit on the likes of Willard, Firpo, Brennan and Carpentier however you slice it) and he wasn't KO'd in the first by a someone like Flynn.
