Mike Tyson vs Rocky Marciano?
Tyson vs Marciano, interesting question, but I believe Tyson in his prime would have knocked him out in the first round, inside of 90 seconds. Marciano had zero defense and a suspect chin. He had great power but at 190lbs he could not have backed Tyson up and a puncher is at his worst when fighting while backing up.
This would have been a fightfan's dream! Man, I would pay a grand to see this thrilling match-up. Prime-to-prime, this wouldn't go over six rounds. Marciano would always come at Tyson with all that he has. Rocky has a tremendous heart; only, Tyson has tremendous power. Rocky may have power, but not as strong as Tyson.
Marciano may have been undefeated, but the greats he fought weren't in their primes anymore. He fought an ancient Archie Moore, a washed-up Joe Walcott, and an aging Joe Louis. You have to give him credit for handling Ezzard Charles, though. He was an explosive fighter! The only problem is his heart. His heart will only take him so far against Tyson's power. He charges towards you. That kind of style is a puncher's favorite since he doesn't need to chase the man across the ring and waste his stamina. Just look at what happened to Morales when he kept charging at Pacman. As for Tyson, he only charges towards you when he knows he can. He is smart. He wouldn't charge towards Rocky, or the tide would turn in Rocky's favor. Tyson would hit Marciano with power shots from afar. After wearing him down, Tyson will go inside and then upststairs. Then, it will be lights out for Rocky.
Rocky, Rocky, Tyson is a Joke.
Marciano would lose because he's dead.
But seriously, Marciano would beat him. So would alot of other fighters like Sonny Liston, Joe Frazier, Floyd Patterson and Muhammad Ali. Mike Tyson is way overrated. If you look at his fights, he hasn't really beaten anyone that good. He hasn't beaten anyone phenomenal. Muhammad Ali for example has beaten the best of his time and the best of all times: Joe Frazier, Sonny Liston, George Foreman, Ken Norton, Leon Spinks, etc. . . Champions 30-40 years ago could easily beat any of the champions today without an effort.
Tyson in his prime was the best fighter ever.
It is for you to decide not me.
Theres only one thing that matters and that is Tyson can't take a punch! You could throw bombs at Rocky with no affect! That's why he was undefeated!!
