    I'd pick Louis. Was much faster in his prime than Rock, although this is a closer matchup than people will make it out to be. Mostly due to Rocky's iron chin and neverending heart.

    The Rock was too tough ate lightning and crapped thunder! rock by 14th round knockout it only lasting 14 rounds due to Louis spectacular defense. Im of the mind that as time passes and the sport and training evolves the fighters get better, thats also why im going partly for Marciano

    Too close to call for me. Gun to my head i'll go with Marciano but picking against Joe is nearly impossible.

    I have a tough time picking against Louis against any great HW. Especially in a second matchup.

    Joe takes it by KO probably around 6 or 7. Marciano would have to stand and punch with Joe. He would have been put to sleep like the rest.

    Louis.

    Louis in his prime did great against slow fighters like Marciano.

    He would counter him like crazy and get the KO late in the fight.

    When Marciano beat Louis, would you consider Marciano to have been in his prime?

    Hmm Yes.

    Marciano did a very smart thing, he retired when he still was at the peak of his career.
