Charles was past prime but was well prepared for the fight. He trained hard and really wanted to win. He gave it everything he had in both fights. These were Charles' 98th and 99th pro fights... his 11th and 12th loss. He went just 10-13 after facing Marciano twice.
Prime Charles? I'll take Charles by close decision. Younger versions of Walcott and Moore vs. Marciano? I'll still take Marciano.
