Default Re: Tyson vs Marciano in their respective primes

I hoped this would be a thread with interesting opinions and I haven't been disappointed. I have to say that I really like how "Sonny's jab" makes his case, even though I don't completely agree.

Too bad that many people get riled up just because others don't support their particular guy. I definitely don't think the word "ignorant" can be used against someone favouring either Rocky or Iron Mike since they were both great fighters. The only thing I can say with a 100 % certainity is that I would love to see a fight between these two.

To take it a step further, who do you see winning if they were fighting in the same era (let's say they were both peaking in the late 80's for the sake of simplicty)? I actually think my money would be on Rocky in that case.

5th rd...that's the same pick I made!!! But Tyson fans who are certain that he was indestructable (WRONG) may disagree!

Good fight. These two fighters are among the top five shorter heavyweights of all time. Marciano would have a very tough time beating the 1986 - 1989 Tyson. Speed would be the ultimate factor in this fight and Tyson's combinations would probably KO Marciano inside 8 rounds. When Tyson was young, experts were quick to conclude that he didn't have the stamina to consistently punch in the later rounds as opposed to the early round pace he likes to set. Marciano sometimes was a bit of a slow starter, so unless the fight goes past 8 rounds, Tyson would KO Marciano. Marciano would only win by late KO, the same way Holyfield beat Tyson, or decision.
