Default george chuvalo vs rocky marciano

chuvalo 60 217 pounds

marciano 511 187 pounds

chuvalo was stronger, he had better chin, he was much heavier and naturally bigger, he had 73(64ko),good hitting power. chuvalo was not more slow than rocky, and he had great heart.
marciano was harder puncher, he had more stamina and maybe more heart, (but it is close).

i think that this fight would be much more competitive than many people think.

I agree. George took the best from Ali, Foreman, Frazier, Cleveland Williams, etc. and was never knocked down. Second to none in toughness.

Rocky was indeed a better puncher, if not arguably the best. He never pulled back and always went all-out in his assault. Ruptured blood vessels and fractured bones were invariably the result.

How would this turn out? I'm leaning towards Marciano...by decision.

I tend to agree with you.

I think that Chuvalo would make Marciano look bad.

He would get the worst of it in the end though.

good fight and i come back to frazier's tko of chuvalo. do you guys see marciano just bludgeoning chuvalo or would it turn into a brutal, phone booth fight?

If you stop too many Marciano punches with your face, then you are going to end up in a bad way sooner rather than later.

Chuvalo was game however and at times I think it would be a bit of a phone booth fight.

I think that this pretty much the bottom line with this fight. It'd be a phone booth fight, but catching numerous hard, clean Marciano bombs is going to do some bad things to you pretty quickly, even to the iron jawed Chuvalo.

that's my hope and i think the best chuvalo, sloppy or not, could make an uncomfortable night for marciano. the problem is rocky would too damn persistant to be deterred by a strong chin, iron will and good inside attack. he'd keep coming til something broke

We just did this one but anyway ... Marciano was a much better fighter and would pound out a decision based on volume of effective punches ...

Marciano by decision. Chuvalo took the best of much bigger HW's and wasm't dropped so I don't see Rocky dropping him either but I do see Rocky outworking George and pounding out a decision victory in a sloppy brawl of a fight.

I agree with most of you that Marciano takes this fight. Very intertaining and interesting for about four to six rounds before marcianos power and tenacity begin to wear down his opponent. To beat marciano one has to be very good defensively and i think chuvalo falls a little short. marciano by late rounds tko afteer the fight gets progressively brutal as the rounds go.

I'd have to go with Chuvalo on this one. Chuvalo was bigger than Marciano and had a better defense than most fighters give him credit for. The fact that he was never knocked down makes people to mistakenly believe that his defense was bad, but no fighter with a bad defense can go 97 fights without being knocked down. If Foreman and Frazier couldn't do it, Marciano sure couldn't. I think George throws much better combinations, especially in his later years. Witness him vs. Cleveland Williams: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

I think Marciano would just get overwhelmed. You have to remember that Marciano didn't have very much great opposition. The major players that he beat, viz. Joe Louis, Ezzard Charles, Jersey Joe Walcott, were all quite old at the time. An unbeaten record can't hide the facts.
