I think Rocky would have had a very hard time winning had he fought Harry Greb or Gene Tunney during the 20ís, or Joe Louis during his prime in the 30ís and 40ís. And regardless of what Muhammad Ali later said, I think Ali would have beaten Rocky. He simply had a lot more skill.

By the way, doesn't this thread belong in the "History" part of this forum? Oh, well. No harm done. Good question for a nice thread.
Based on what???show me some of his fight footage
