    Marciano went his whole career undeatfeated 49-0-43ko with an impressive KO percentage. George Foreman also a heavy hitter with a record of 81 fights 76-5-68KO was hammering through the heavy weight division impressively as well. Both fighters are from different eras, but if they weren't would foreman have given marciano his first lost?

    This is perhaps the worst possible fight for swarmer Marciano against monstrous slugger Foreman.
    Foreman TKO early, Marciano will keep getting up and charging forward as he doesn't know the meaning of fear or pain, but his courageous effort will be in vain.

    Mmmmmhm. Marciano matches up with Foreman as badly, if not worse than Frazier, imo.

    I like marciano, and I come from Italian descent but I wouldnt be that naive to think Marciano would beat foreman. Its just a terrible style match up for the Rock, foremans uppercuts and hooks would just hammer marciano who never took a backward step in his life. Similar to the frazier fight.

    Foreman would have been a worse matchup for Rocky than the plane crash.

    i think big george takes it on points but i wouldnt write rocky off from landing a big right hand and finishing the fight late as big george did have some stamina issues when he was younger,,the rock would own clay though
