But Marciano perfected his style. You could call him a highly-skilled slugger: the duck-and-weave; the leverage. Certainly his undefeated record against the best of his time belies the myth that he was just an unskilled brute.

Everybody thought Rocky would be a cakewalk...until they got in the ring with him.

Charles' polished skills--certainly all-time great--were best at lower weights.
