How can you wear someone down if your only form of attack is to walk right into his punching range? The sheer strength behind those punches would knock Rocky off his feet even if they didn't hurt him. But I would put money on them hurting him as well.
Lyle was a good boxer and had the luxury of similar height and a reach almost a foot longer than Rocky, he was also a very strong man himself. He fought Foreman coming off a humiliating loss and one year lay-off.
Still got ground into the dust.
