i REALLY hope that thought went through rocky's head at least once. does rocky just go super saiyan or something

but why didn't he use this power against lastarza ?

i don't think it's that easy and wlad KNOWS when he has to keep distance from a fighter and smother the action. that's what he'd do against rocky, who would be frustrated as **** against a fighter who is constantly jabbing him from across the ring (i love rock but he does have t-rex arms)

I think the argument is that everything tangible is in Vlads favor.

Great prime heavyweight fighters don't lose because someone is big. Marciano is proven to be an all time great and is rated as such. He is rated that high for many reasons but one of those reason is there is no quit in Marciano, no looking for the exits blank stares when hurt, no falling apart stupid ko losses Wlad has x 3. What are the qualities of a great fighter? Courage, the ability to take punishment and hard blows and not fall apart, will to win, ability to deliver hard ko punches, the ability to block, slip, feint, parry and then counter to vital areas of an opponents body. we all know Marciano can take a punch and won't quit. We also know that Wlad can't take a punch and more than likely will not do well when a heavy punch hits his chin.

I disagree. The qualities of a great fighter are A. Fighting great and B. Beating your opposition.

The qualities of an all time great fighter have been handed down over many years. These are what the great boxing historians and trainers looked for when a fighter is touted as being great. Wlad ain't great. In a real tough fight he more than likely will lose. Greatness is spelled out during tough times not when slapping around tomato cans.

The Human Statue? Do you even watch boxing or is it just some kind of nostalgia based fantasy role playing game for you?
