Re: Why do people seem to hold the ****ell fight against Marciano?
****ell was better than he looked. He beat lastarza and mathews and was unbeaten as a heavyweight. The marciano fight finished him, don never won another fight so any kudos valdes gets for beating ****ell is wiped out in my view. Valdes, aside from being big is SO over rated. He lost to 175 pounders satterfeild, moore, johnson the only name fighter nino actualy beat during marciano's championship was jackson. Remember charles was bear hugged to death and never given a rematch because ezzard still was beating all the guys who beat nino.
