If the fight hadn't actually happened how would a poll '1956 Archie Moore vs Floyd Patterson who wins?' go down in these parts? I think most would pick Archie and probably by KO. Floyd's chances at head to head matches are often overlooked due to his less than stellar chin......but it didn't always let him down.

Patterson could be quite superb at times and a victory over the Rocky that met Moore wouldn't be by any means ridiculous.

I'd put my money on the Rock pulling off a late/behind on points victory in 1956. But an upset wouldn't be a huge surprise......

Agree with these two posts.

I once asked Patterson on a call in TV show if he regretted not getting to fight Marciano. Without even hesitating, he plainly said "no". True story.
you gotta think though, that if rock was still champion while floyd was making his way up the ranks, he'd had to have fought him eventually.

Marciano would have knocked him out before the end of the 5th round.

Marciano would have found a way, using his nice angles, to find Patterson's chin and knock him out.

i take back what i said, floyd patterson won the title a year after rocky retired, so taking account that timeline, rocky ko's patterson if they'd met in 56'.

Perhaps Marciano retired at the right time, he wasn't getting any younger. I'm sure he felt sooner or later he would take the bucket to the well and the bucket would come back empty.

answer no rock had too much punching power and put too much constant pressure on for a small heavyweight like patterson even with his speed, rocky would get to him during the fight

Default No way!

No way Patterson beats Marciano, with luck 1 outta 10 times if they fought.

they would put on a great fight as long as it lasted but Floyd's style would perfect for Marciano to eventually catch him, and he would bang him up and hurt him on the way to the KO.

Now Liston -Marciano is another story, would have been a war until someone went down, whoever hit the other one 1st with the big one wins, maybe Listons long reach and boxing might be the advantage, but maybe the Rock does as he always does, keeps plugging and pounding until like Chavez vs Taylor, he beats his opponent down over the fight and then Ko's him.

Patterson's chin would eventually meet a marciano bomb, and that would be the fight..

I don't see how floyd could last all 15 Rds with marciano

I think Patterson is more fairly compared to 175lbers.

Great style and awesome speed, but too small and especially too chinny to match up well vs the top HWs
