Default Re: Rocky Marciano VS Earnie Shavers. Who wins and how?

Marciano by knockout.

Even if Shavers connects on the sweetspot I have enough faith that Marciano could or would get up and get through it. If or when Shavers gets hurt Rocky is eventually going to finish him.

That's what it is, honestly. The guy who can walk through a ton of adversity and is a relentless finisher is going to beat a guy who lacks that type of toughness and jaw, no matter the power difference, and Rocky wasn't a soft hitter.
Just out of interest Magnassakki - from the point of a big heavyweight with a good deal of experience sparring with some of the best heavyweight of recent years - what's your thoughts generally on Rocky Marciano? How do you envisage it being in there sparring with him - apparently he never really 'looked' that great in sparring ever? What do you see in him in general from the point of view of someone who's mixed it with the best in the business?
