have you researched those losses yet? I dont think charles was anymore dominant in the late 1940s than he was during the post title, pre marciano period. apart from the walcott KO loss there is a case to say Charles had not been beaten beyond dispute since the war until he met rocky marciano.

If charles was any better a fighter at the time he fought barone, beshore and lee oma than he was against marciano then the press reports do not back it up IMO.
