Marciano could have beaten Ali, Even Ali seems to think so.
For a proud person like Ali to talk like that about another great heavyweight shows he thought it would have been very difficult.

Marciano was a pressure fighter with a big heart. Ali hated those. Yes Marciano was better than Frazier, but i dont think he could have beaten prime Ali 2 out of 3 times

Wow, talk about respectful. Just shows, behind the bluster Ali was a very classy guy. I think Ali could have absorbed the punishment from Marciano and outpointed him, but who knows. Marciano is often quite underrated on ESB. His defense was much better than people realize, and his style was very awkward, relentless and brutal. I can't think of anyone under 200lbs that would have beaten him in a 15 round fight.

I here that.It would be hard for Rocky to repeat a win over Ali for sure,but not impossible.When i think of Rocky Marciano,nothing is impossible.

Marciano's defense is under rated.He may not have done everything with style and grace,but he always got the job done period.He did this with physical attributes that would be the exact opposite of what a fighter should look like or built like...Not a tall man,short arms,not a big(man) heavy weight.Almost every one of Rockys opponents were taller and out weighed him as a pro.

Rocky perfected the style he had.This and the Heart,determination,relentlessness and stamina Marciano had makes for one dangerous man.

Frazier has gone on record that he thinks very highly of Marciano as well.

If Ali and Marciano got in the ring together at their respective best, it wouldn't matter who won, they would have both laid it all down for 15 hellish rounds. Neither man would have been the same.

I'm still surprised that Marciano still hit that hard when he was an old man though. I've heard he broke people's arms before and made them bleed inside through punching, but this interview probably lends credence to that claim.

I'm sure he does as Joe was a class act as well ..But I wonder if hearing it from Ali didn't make Joe want to punch his TV set

The "arm thing" was true. Roland LaStarza had to have emergency surgery after their rematch because bone fragments shattered in his arms from Rocky punching his guard, a deliberate strategy to wear the defensive minded fighter down.
