Default Marciano vs. Morrison

Who wins?

I think this is pretty intriguing. Morrison seems almost like a poor man's Tyson. Tremendous physical tools. Come foward pucher who usually throws power shots dispensing w/the jab. Certainly, he lacks tyson's defense and movement. He had a great left hook, but from all accounts, his training and dedication left something to be desired.

Seems Morrison's best weight was around 220ish just like Tyson. Marciano would be giving up around 35 pounds. Most Tyson/Marciano polls seem to be 66/34 in favor of Tyson.

IMO, Morrison seems to be viewed as a flop in general but he did UD Foreman right before George stopped Moorer. I think he gets a bad rap w/his chin (Mercer fight), it was his poor work ethic and lifestyle which prevented him from fulfilling his potential.

I think Marciano gets knocked down early in the first by a left w/Morrison carrying the fight for 2/3 rounds. Then Marciano kicks it into another gear and his workrate and iron will overwhelm Morrison by the 9/10.

Both could whack but Rocky could do it witrh both hands ,plus he had a better chin and bags more stamina Marciano by Ko similar to the Mercer one.

This would be a fast paced,wicked brawl. With Morrisons hand speed, Tommy would have no problem finding Marciano but Marcianos granite chin would diffuse Morrisons bombs.As the fight wore on Rocky would get inside more and more.The Duke would be taking punishment to the arms, hips, kidneys, and the back of his head as well as his rib cage and stomach.Uppercuts on the inside by Morrison would cut Rocky,and stop him in his tracks, but the Brockton Blockbuster would always wade in again and again.Over a period of time, Tommy would be busted up as well, and the rough pace of the fight would take its toll on Morrison especially.Somewhere around the midway point of a 15 round fight, Marciano would crack Tommy with a hellacious right (the suzie-Q) , and while Morrison sank to the floor , The Rock would hit him thrice more.Tommy lands in a heap,the referee waves his arms, the ringside doctor flies into the ring to attend to the quivering, semi-consious Morrison, and Marciano is greeted by his handlers as he calmly walks back to his corner.

I think Tommy was a better boxer, but Van (or even Jim) was a better singer

I think Marciano can get Morrison in 3 or 4.

simple as this: morrisons chins sucked!!!

thats a weakness you cant afford vs rocky.

here is what happens: faster morrison jumps on marciano, drills him with the hook....that backs up rocky. tommy comes in looking to take him out, slugs with rocky, takes a right and goes down face first.
gets up at nine. rocky comes after him, puts him in the ropes, drills him with the hook and a right.
morrison goes through the ropes and straight to the hospital.

Marciano's chin was never really tested against super heavyweights, so I'd give Morrison a chance for early KO.

I think Rocky would KO him, as this is a bad style matchup for the Duke. Facing someone with that kind of one hit power, workrate, and chin always adds up the wrong way for Tommy.

Tommy probably would've busted Rocky up a little though- Rocky was there to get hit, and Morrison would've landed enough to let Rocky know he was in a fight. It would've been exciting while it lasted though.

There's no two ways about this one. Steroids couldn't help Morrisons chin and Marciano will find it with whatever hand lands first. Rocky by KO.

I dont see any way Morrison wins. He might be able to stay away from Marciano for a couple of rounds like he did with Foreman, but even if he could Marciano is going to land and when he does it is over. Marcianos workrate was far too great for Morrison to last any more than 6 rounds.
