    Why not? He was better at getting inside than Marciano imo (more technical, better feet, jab head-movement ect; stronger and bigger too). You think Wlad couldn't push Marciano back like that?

    Wlad's jab is as good as any imo, Holmes and Ali are the only people I'd give a clear edge to, and even then it wouldn't be a big edge.

    Povetkin is nearly 4 inches taller than Marciano and 40lbs heavier! Why wouldn't Wlad get away with holding Marciano?
    Explain why he couldn't do that to a much smaller, lighter man?

    I explained it earlier. Watch the povetikin fight he throws no upper cuts. Very few body shots and he’s not a dirty fighter. If we’d tried to illegally hold Marciano he will get head butted he will catch an uppercut and he will get low blowed. Povetkin bless him didn’t retaliate properly and should have threw more uppercuts

    Good look trying to headbutt someone with a 7inch height advantage.

    Wlad will bend to him to try and put weight on him. Low blow is closer and easier lol

    Yeah Wlad's balls will be about where Rocky's head would be.
    This is Rocky with a 6'3" Ali
    Now imagine another 3 inches of height and 20lbs.

    Rocky gets his head up the leg of Wlad's shorts and gets disqualified for biting his protector.

    Waldo probably win this fight if Steward is in his corner, but let's be real here, Waldo does NOT have faster handspeed than anybody Rocky fought. That's silly.

    Wlad beat plenty of guys who would dominate Marciano. Sorry, guy, you need to get out in the real boxing world and discover what's up. Wlad was a generational talent.

    On the flipside, Marciano would always be hell against another sub-200 guy. But the book is written on how to dominate small heavies. The only out for those small heavies is being preternaturally quick and balanced. Marciano simply doesn't have what it takes to move up like that. Worse than that, he is deficient in those departments.

    I know, sad. But learn to live with it. You will be a better person.

    Exactly. Matching Rocky with Wlad and his opponents (median weight: 232lb) is plain unfair.

    No yawn. Rocky does not have to beat such fellows to be a damn good fighter!

    What was the name of this great fighter who dominated the division?

    So, because I could dunk on a playground player who played JuCo, I could dunk on Lebron, right?
