i Do not like it when People use Stats to Judge a Fight, its to One Dimensional for the Sweet Science.
The fact that Clay was up at the count of 4 to me means he would've been able to continue against Cooper. Marciano was relentless, but Ali in his prime is too fast, with excellent recuperative powers and probably the greatest chin of any heavyweight. Ali by late round TKO. Rocky's face would be a bleeding battered mess.
