Marciano definetly had less losses than tyson, however tyson had more title defences.Taking into account weight, and size differential of these fighters and of there opposition I don't think that marciano 184lbs could take or throw a better or harder punch than tyson 218lbs. Marciano was a great fighter but throughout history even great fighters have had problems giving up 34lbs. Pound for Pound I would say that Marciano was better.bill1234 said:I'm talking about a prime Tyson vs a prime Marciano. But how could Tyson beat Marciano? Marciano could take and throw a better punch than Tyson. Tyson had good power, but Marciano had more. Also I mean P4P who would win Marciano or Tyson.
When I said that tyson would win in 3 rounds or less I was talking about a prime tyson. Tyson was in his prime before his first loss, to douglas. When he had the right people to discipline, train, and promote him tyson didn't have a problem with anyone he fought. When he fought holyfield tyson was past his prime. With Cus and his team tyson would have retired undefeated. Even when you include this fantacy matchup in his record.Dr. Wisdom said:I will have to go with the Rock on this. Tyson, had a hard time with fighters who brought the heat. All through his carrer if someone could take his power, he freaked out, and couldn't handle it. If you remember the very 1st Tyson v Holy fight. It was a great fight through Round 3. Tyson hit Holy with a late shot (clearly after the bell) flush. Holy hit him back, and after that it was all Holy. Tyson just lost his mental edge and holy had his way.
Same thing would happen if "Rocky and Tyson ever fought".
Rocky would win in the later rounds KO 9
thats the point ive been making, marciano wasn't big enough to hang with the hw of the last 20 years.dmoney said:Depending on what version of Tyson your talking about determines the answer to your question. A prime Tyson would have gotten rid of Marciano in less than 3 rounds. Marciano just was not big enough to fight Tyson. Look at what Tyson did to other cruzierweights who moved up to heavyweight (Marvis Fraizer). Marciano was wicked tought though so he might last 3 rounds.
If marciano was 7feet tall and weighed 300lbs he would have beaten everybody but the fact is he weighed 184 lbs and was smaller than tyson. A prime tyson would beat a prime marciano in my opinion. However if tyson had an off night or was past his prime marciano would take him. If you are talking who is a better p4p fighter marciano was, but the fact is tyson weighed more than marciano.bill1234 said:I am talking about P4P that means weight and size makes no difference. Inother word if they were the exact same size!

i take it you didn't see tyson ko clifford ettiene that ko sent shockwaves and to me looked better than the walcott ko.bill1234 said:Heres a question that I know the answer to... Have you have seen Tyson hit a guy as hard as Marciano did Walcot? Tyson was out of breathafter 10 rounds, Marciano was never out of breath.
