last i saw marciano wasn't connecting on too many of those elbows anyhow. he was short armed as they come which meant he had to get in tight and deliver in a very tight arc, the elbow follows, may graze, but rarely really connects with power. his greatest ko's were of attrition, even jjw I was preceded by a pounding.
