Now I always liked watching Morrison fight, but this is a pretty unlikely match-up for the guy to win. It would have to be Marciano TKO for me...but I do think The Rock would definitely feel Morrison's punches for a while afterwards.

Exactly, hard puncher + iron chin against hard puncher + glass chin= KTFO for the 2nd guy...

a simply calculus, even for a non- math- specialist like me...

I think Marciano would be able to weather any storm Morrison would throw, and then dish out some finishing damage. Marciano KO middle rounds

The shots that Walcott and Moore used to put Marciano on the deck would have put Morison to sleep for a week.

Guys like that who can land a sneaky combination are a much stiffer test of a chin than a power puncher who is esentialy predictable. Even a superheavyweight.



This is a quite extroardinary statment. Look at the punch stats for some of Marciano's fights and compare them to modern fights.

In the first Charles fight he esentialy matched the all time record punch output for a 12 round heavyweight fight over 15 rounds.

Marciano had sledgehammers. Get real. I loved watching Morrisson though (unlike most I think he was handing Mercer his ass before he got tied up in the ropes)(Poor ref work). He would of been counting the lights early in this fight. Tommy isn't in the same class as Marciano.

Morrison wasn't so bad really, He gets high points from me for the way he disciplined himself against Foreman, and the strategy he used in staying just out of range and going for a points win, whereas Michael Moorer got suckered into standing right in front of George for that sleeping pill that he got in the 10th round. Tommy's best fight in my opinion, and as George went on to humble and embarrass Moorer, Morrison should be proud of himself. However, that much said, he would have been a lamb going to the slaughter against Rocky Marciano. There's absolutely no way he would have won that fight, and Marciano would have looked his very best in winning brutally by a knockout.

I don't even like Marciano and I gotta say he takes this one. What I've seen of morrison doesn't even compare.
