chuvalo was stronger, he had better chin, he was much heavier and naturally bigger, he had 73(64ko),good hitting power. chuvalo was not more slow than rocky, and he had great heart.
marciano was harder puncher, he had more stamina and maybe more heart, (but it is close).

i think that this fight would be much more competitive than many people think.
I agree. George took the best from Ali, Foreman, Frazier, Cleveland Williams, etc. and was never knocked down. Second to none in toughness.

Rocky was indeed a better puncher, if not arguably the best. He never pulled back and always went all-out in his assault. Ruptured blood vessels and fractured bones were invariably the result.

How would this turn out? I'm leaning towards Marciano...by decision.
