Kind of my point. Layne was , for then, big and strong ... he was in very good shape ( for him ) ... he was young ... Marciano just tore him to pieces ... after the way Layne fought on even terms w Walcott and Charles you could see he had something going for him .. he was obviously a good stylistic match up as he was not fast but he was a strong guy, a young guy, a man with a good right hand and Marciano simply crushed him ...
