or is somehow ingo a better puncher than marciano?
Floyds handspeed and his punches getting there before Rockys is exactly how I see him giving Rocky problems and knocking him down. Floyd is an excellent boxer but yes he would probably engage and it would depend how strategic he was when he engaged in if he could pull off the upset. I expect each fighter to hit the floor and have a Floyd-Ingo or Hamed-Kelly type war.
Ingo was a damn good puncher and pretty underrated. He ko'ed a common opponent faster than Liston
In a 3 fight series prime for prime I would expect it to go 2-1 Maricano.
Welcome back its been a while since we argued
