I tried this match up on FNC playing as Marciano and I got KTFO but, FNC tenders to tall boxers. Anyway it's irrelevant.
In a 15 rounder the Rock definitely gets a stoppage victory and there is no bones about it, if it gets to 15 Rock wins 10/10 (Unless a cut stoppage.)
In a 12 rounder I think Rock will get the Late KO around the ninth with an even scorecard after Vitali tires around the 7th from the accumulation of body punches and just being hit constantly(The Rock didn't care if punches hit your arms, shoulders etc. Everything takes its toll).
I honestly think the Rock's crouch would wreak havoc on Vitali's big straight punches which must travel a long distance.
In a 3 fight series(especially in these days) I could see Vitali getting a cut stoppage win.

There would be a chance Marciano would make Vitali quit espesially if it was a 15 rounder. I think Vitali would have a problem with Marciano's pace and intensity. Vitali has never been knocked out but a human can only take so much and a fighter like Marciano would be all over Vitali. Marciano would get to Vitali eventually and once he did the punches would come at a tempo and power that Vitali can't match. And from all different sorts of angles, Archi Moore compared it to trying to fight an air plane propeller.
Marciano most likely by Ko but could win a decision if Vitali some how made it through the 12 or 15 rounds.

I never dismiss Rocky's greatness. But these are two different weight classes. If you saw them stand face to face in a boxing ring, you would get a sick feeling that you were about to see a gross mismatch.

Rocky Marciano KO inside of 6 rounds. Anything after that and Vitali is so gassed he takes more unnecessary punishment and then gets knocked out.

People also like to try their hand at criticising Marciano's opposition, but he has by far the edge when compared with Klitschko.
On the other hand, Klitschko does fight tall well, & even though I don't rate him nearly as highly as most people (he will always be over-rated to me), he has a strong case here. It would be interesting.
