Default Rocky Marciano vs Muhammad Ali?

Marciano had something other monster punchers didn't which was the ability to carry his vicious assault for 15 rounds. However his small size, 67 inch reach would seem like a joke to the superior 80 inch reach, size, accuracy, reflexes and amazing speed of Ali. However I don't see Ali's constant taunting and joking around not getting him caught with a bomb shot that Marciano is famous for delivering. What is your opinion on this fight. I think Ali would win a UD unless Marciano managed to break something and slow him down enough to land some shots. This is a hard fight to call.

Ali. And its not nearly close. Marciano catches a bad beating for as long as it lasts.

Hard to imagine the Rock handling any version of Ali other than the one Berbick beat.

Just can't see him finding a way to land effectively on him.

Rocky bursted bloodvessels.
Never seen Ali doing that.

Sounds like a plan. It might even inspire a movie or two down the line as well.

Charles hit him with an elbow. Is Ali going to take a steak knife into the ring?

If cooper could of put him down, then so could rocky. People think this is cake walk for ali, all i got to say is HA ha ha ha. i could see rocky stopping him, cause unlike cooper he had a granit chin an would follow up on knockdown..... if they fought 10 times i see rocky winning a few

Its been a while since a watched that fight.If thats true then fair enough,but still does not change the fact that Marciano was prone to cuts.No knife required am pretty sure Ali also possed elbows too.

Marciano was a fearless and relentless warrior..

But Ali is a much better boxer, more accurate, faster, bigger and more skilled..

Ali would carve Marciano up and cut him.. Prime Ali by TKO 70s version UD
