I vaguely recall Rocky Marciano being very impressed by Chuvalo. A man after his own heart.

If Chuvalo had what it takes to beat Marciano, he wouldn't have lost all of to Ellis, Bonavena, Paterson, Cleroux, etc... Tough fight for Rocky, but he throws too much and is too hard to hit cleanly for a guy like Chuvalo.

would marciano get the 1950's gloves or the late 1960's gloves? chuvalos face int he frazier fight was from a bone infection chuvalo is basicaly a big big 1950s fighter. no flash no pizzaz, just grit and determination, chuvalo was the stronger puncher ala foreman/vitali but marciano had the ko power with the speed. but in the end if it was a 50 round fight i'd take chuvalo, he was just too big and too strong for a guy who could of maybe made lhw if he wanted to, ive seen marcianos diet the amount of red meat they guy eats adds so much weight to him.

Guys .. if anyone ever wanted to see Rocky go 15 rounds with a heavy bag this is it ... Marciano not fast enough to do the damage likely for a stoppage but I see him something like 11 - 4 in rounds .. just a huge talent gap here ..

You're surely in the EXTREME minority here Luke. Patterson, plain and simple, simply outworked George, rather comfortably (including a Chuvalo trainer I talked to on the internet some years ago who said the same thing.)
Rocky UD over George. Too busy, too crisp with his punches, outside of the GREAT Chuvalo left hook to the body, he really didn't have any 'numbing power' to hurt any top level fighter to the point of a stoppage. Outside of the Quarry anamoly, what top-ranked fighter did George ever beat down?
I will admit, the first few rounds would have been a pier-6 brawl however.
