Re: How would a prime Charles have fared against Marciano?
I do think he'd slipped by the time he fought rocky.
He got stopped by a perfect punch against jersey, but other than that, he hadn't really lost since returning to boxing in 46.
After losing to jersey, he lost to him again, lost to layne, lost to valdes and lost to johnson.
He picked up many victories as well during this time.
I'd like to read up on the valdes fight more. I plan on watching the harold johnson fight later.
Unless i'm missing something with these losses, i'd say jersey was the last man to beat a prime charles.
