Holyfield, technically more sound with as much toughness and stamina. I love Rocky but Holyfield is 1 of the best ever

It would definitely be a non-stop back-and-forth war. I'm thinking Holyfield by close decision.

At any weight Holy doesn't punch hard enough to hurt Rocky. Late (15 round fight) round KO for Rocky

I could believe in a win for either man, but Holyfield wins.

Holyfield won't move and it'll turn into a counter-on-the-inside game, which Holy wins with big uppercuts and hooks. Marciano may well hurt him, may well drop him, and may well stop him, but again, probably not. I could say the same line for Holy.

This becomes a game of landing first, and Evan is the better counterpuncher.

The one fight that makes this outcome clear to me is the Holyfield -Toney fight, James was one of the few that went to the body of Evander and put pressure on him and Toney did not have the power or the ability to put on pressure like Marciano...Evander was a beast with a lot of heart but this would be a case of the more explosive Marciano winning the war of attrition in a quick paced bout....Marciano KO in 9

Holyfield was two weeks from his 41st birthday in that Toney fight. Maybe Marciano pulls out the stoppage then just like he did against Archie Moore 39, Jersey Joe Walcott 39, and Joe Louis 37. Marciano was real good at beating up old guys. I just don't see him doing that to any ATG heavyweights his own age. Prime for prime Holyfield has this one.

At any weight Marciano wins. I think the 187 pound Holyfield might do better than the bigger juiced up version.

I think Rocky gets Holy outa there by the 9th or 10th Rounds..by then Marciano would have put too much punishment on him and Evander would fall..

If Marciano hurts him or drops him...The fights over, and do you really think Holy would go toe to toe with Rocky. Or does he stay away fight a smart fight use his jab, jumpin in and out with great combos and countering.
