I don't think I am going too far out on a limb to suggest he had better nutrition and health care than Sonny Liston or Joe Louis.


You are looking at a legit 7'2 for Joe and Sonny with ye olde modern nutrition.

I was being conservative in order to make my argument more convincing to the naysayers (Wlad nuthuggers).

On the other hand, Wlad would have been about four feet three in Marciano's day and most likely getting knocked out by other midgets like Lewis in a circus tent somewhere.

He's just lucky he grew up in an era with modern nutrition and advances.

Because we all know that FOOD was invented in 1988.

Even allowing for size mattering, I'm hesitant to jump on board with the idea of Lennox or Wladimir putting Rocky down and out (all the way) before he can get to them...

Yeah, neither of them would stand a chance against the might of Marciano.

If Moore and Walcott good put the lil' guy on the canvas, Wlad and Lennox would put him through it.

Meh Wlad would be scared of Rocky and wouldn't even throw any power shots. He would be cowardly and on the back foot the entire fight despite being significantly bigger than Rock.
