Rocky uses his superior jab and speed to out box Wlad to an easy decision victory ..

Jeez o pete another 'different eras' matchup. You're all tired of hearing my 'era' mantra but please! A prime 1952 Wlad vs. a prime 2002 Rock? We could go on and on. In my limited opinion the ONLY legitimate 'era' comparison would be between prime fighters 10-15 years apart. That being said, a 1962 prime Marciano-Frazier might well have been the greatest fight of all time! My somewhat limited $0.02

Wlad has a good style with which to withstand Rocky, but winning is another matter. His size is oni his side because it helps keep rocky away from his chin so he has a good chance BUT the big bogie is his chin, which needs a split second to crack.

Marciano doesn't actually land very often with his wild style but he has KO power. Will he land? It only needs to be once. That's Wlad big bogie.

Marcianos problem is closing the gap. Can he close the gap over 12 rounds? Wlad needs to keep him at bay and keep jabbing all that time to win, since Rocky wont tire in the way that Wlads usual fatboys do. Wlad cant unload until Rocky tires, the risk is too great. But that dosnt mean he cant win it on points. I don't think Wlad hits enough in his run away mode to hurt Rocky for TKO either.

Waldo's almost 38 now which would be prime for the wee fellow. Too bad Waldo wasnt once s ligjtheavy because that would seal the deal.

These comparison's are utterly pointless, as was said above you can maybe go a couple of decades back to compare otherwise you are comparing a giant to a relative midget and the giant is supposed to run..

Lets see EXACTLY who these bugs and earwigs were that were beaten by Marciano, and weighed 240+, stood 6'6" with an 81" reach.

I suspect they were the kind of **** that either Klitchko would only use to carry their spit buckets.

**** like Alex Leapai, a part-time fighter and forklift driver who that Adonis of a man is now fighting for the Heavyweight Championship? For shame.

I'd give Leapai a fair chance to KO ****ell quicker than Marciano did.

Anyhow, it's clear and quite shameful that Waldo is in coast gear. I wish both brothers would retire today. The Povetkin bout had all the makings of the best heavy match for some time and Waldo took an unconscionably safe route to victory AFTER cold****ing Alex with a single hook, something no one had ever done in his long career (so far as I know)....

Anyways, wake me up when both these guys are retired.

Eras! Eras! get a grip Fox!
A 1952 Wlad would have been a 215-220 pounder, 6'6" with the reach and a much leaner body that could have been pounded.
A 2000 Rocky would have been 200+ lbs. and much more conducive to modern boxing.
A 52 Rock vs. a 00 Wlad? Your boy wins, point given.
Screw these mythical matchups. You simply have to consider the era, the training, the size, the fights per year (you want to put a 2000 Sugar Ray Robinson against the turn of the century's best?) They'de get their asses handed to them in spades by the greatest fighter of ALL time!
I said I wouldn't comment anymore on these 'era' matchuups but here I go again.
Ray Robinson is the greatest fighter that has ever lived!

Plus 1952 Wlad may be shorter; 2000s Rocky may be taller.

The prototypical heavyweight back then was maybe 6' now its 6'5".

In that case the Rock wins easy. Wlad's chin has always been suspect.
