Default Re: Rocky Marciano Last Interview "How I Would Beat Ali"

I think the major deciding factor in this is Ali's capacity to score repeatedly & knock fighters out on the back foot.

Come forward fighter like Rocky would not have a plan to beat Ali (Apart from coming foreward), but Ali would have several to beat Rocky.

I know he could punch, but if Ali could take everything that Foreman dished up in Zaire, I couldn't see the Rock doing any better.

One of the big things at the time of the Frazier loss was the punch count.
It was something 500+ to Joe's 300+.
Bill Recht's score card of 11-4 for Frazier stunk in the eyes of the many fans, journo's & regulars etc.

God bless The Rock.
