    33 year old Marciano goes for his 50th win against the up and coming 21 year old Floyd Patterson. Would Rocky be too shop worn or does he take out the young man?

    I see this almost like Julio Cesar Chavez vs Meldrick Taylor …Marciano uses his power and stamina to come from behind and score a knock out

    Floyd has the speed and youth to take a UD. There's a reason Rocky bowed out when he did.

    33 isn't old. Take a look at the ages of the top HW's of today.

    I see no way and no time period in which Floyd Patterson defeats Rocky Marciano.
    Patterson didn't have the chin to take a beating from Rocky.

    PEDs are available today. And, indeed, sometimes prescribable.

    Rocky still wins in 1956. 1957 make it even.

    Floyd's hand/foot speed along with his superb punching power would be too much for an aging Marciano.
    Patterson by TKO12.

    The Rock finally meets a young athlete and is always a step behind. Corner stoppage after a brutal 10th that leaves his face a mess. Last of the lunch pail heavyweight champs goes out with dignity and the world is a better place.
