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.
I am going to agree and disagree here.

Tyson did have One punch power. Botha, Golota, and plenty of others tasted Tysons one punch power. Though, he is not a 5 in power of all time, and Rocky is probly a Top Three. ( Shavers and Forman being the others)

And Tyson never had that much power in the later rounds. Rocky nearly killed walcot that fight.

Thats what I'm gettng at, they think just because Rocky was 5'10 he didn't hold as much power as th 5'11 218lbs Tyson. That is just wrong Shavers was on 6' and he could hit VERY hard and had bg 1 punch KO power. He just had chin issues.

No he wouldn't. You go by size and that is it. A prime Ali, Holmes, Louis, Baer, Lennox Lewis, Foreman, Marciano and Liston would beat Tyson. Tyson ran out of gas after 5 rounds. All of these guys were used to going 15 rounds if needed (usualy not). Tyson was not unbeatable in his prime, nobody is. Holmes could probably take Marciano, and and Marciano could beat Ali. Marciano would KO Tyson because if Holyfield could drive Tyson back, Marciano could turn Tyson into a jitterbug dancer like Ali. No matter how bad things got Marciano NEVER backed up. If anything he charged more swinging wildly and using every last bit of his KO power in either hand. On a scale of 1-10 Tyson ranked about an 8 in raw power. He got most of his KO's with fast combo's. He was 1'' taller than Marciano and with 20lbs on him. Tyson may have weighed more and been 1'' taller than Marciano, but Marciano had one thing TYson would never be equal to Marciano in besides takeing a punch and power, and that would be the will to go on. Marciano's nose was split on the nostral and was bleeding a lot. Marciano KO'd Charles that same round. Tyson could never do that.

tyson would have only needed 2 or 3 rounds against marciano who never dreamed a fighter could be so fast and powerfull.

But he saw Ali who was faster than Tyson. And Marciano was more powerful.

Tyson would knock Marciano's head into the third row. Tyson was way to fast and powerful. At his prime Tyson was hard to hit. Marciano's face alway had a glove attached to it. If Tyson didn't knock him out then Marciano would be a bloody mess by the end of the fight.

But, he could take GREAT shots and punishment. Marciano hit harder than Tyson, he could take a better shot then Tyson, and he had better stamina than Tyson. Tyson had issues with people who fought back (even in his prime), and Marciano NEVER backed up. Tyson would slug it out (failing) with Marciano. Marciano could slug it out with anyone, and beat them.

Not necicarily, Marciano was good at slugging-matches and in a slugfest where you in close speed isn't everything. All Marciano would need to do is hit Tyson with a good right and it would be all over.
