What is your opinion on this match, and how will this fight end?

To me:

Patterson UD4 Marciano
Marciano TKO5 Patterson

Marciano TKO 8. He outworks Floyd and is just too strong and hits too hard. Floyd also isn't mobile enough to escape.

I think you are aiming a bit high there, because Liston knocked Patterson out in one twice. i see Patterson not lasting all of that long.

I laugh when people say that Marciano ducked Patterson when Patterson was not even a heavyweight when Marciano was fighting. I am glad that some people have brains!

i gave patterson alot more time and he would not be as afraid of a smaller guy as he was with "old scowl face". certainly still there in round 12.

Marciano was bigger than Patterson. I saw an interview with Patterson after his fight with Chuvalo, and Marciano was sitting next to him. Marciano looked to be about 6'3 and 250lbs compared to him.

and plus Marciano hit harder than Liston. He would not make it past round 6 for sure. Patterson just does not have a good enough chin.

The fight that Foreman had with Chuvalo, and Foreman just keeps unloading on him, and Chuvalo STILL will not fall. He was a very tough man.

WOW im not sure about that.

Liston could certainly pack a wallop and lets not forget patterson was a tough guy brought up in the meaner part of New York (if my memory is correct) Liston just had his number. Patterson's jab was also very good im not sure if marciano fought anyone with a better jab (Bill 1234 may be able to let us know)

Liston never did as much damage as Marciano did. Patterson was not that tough compared to the Heavyweights before his era and after his are (the Marciano Era and the Ali Era). Patterson was known for having a glass jaw (which usually his heart made up for it as he would rise a lot when he would fall) and was knocked out when he took extremely hard punches. Jersey Joe Walcott most definatley had a better jab than Patterson too, with power and sufficient speed, and I am sure that Bill will be able to tell you the same thing.

its np. You know quite a bit about boxing yourself. There is nothing that I love more than boxing. How far back do you watch fights. I've seen part of the first boxing match ever to be recorded in 1894 with the father of modern boxing, Gentleman Jim Corbett.

Walcott and Louis had better jabs. LaStarza's was maybe a notch below Patterson's.

Rocky could have a problem with the hand speed of Patterson BUT I believe Rocky would catch up to him sooner or later.
