Re: Was the Layne fight Rocky's most impressive performance ?
I spoke years ago to someone who was in boxing, and saw th efight. He called it most impressive of Maricano's wins. I go with Walcott fight, due to Marciano overcoming the eye problems in middle rounds. Lyne was considered the next great heavyweight, ahd beaten Walcott, had convincing beat 3 other top contenders of era. He got not just beaten by Marciano, but ruined, unfortuently. Would have been good to see him come back and challenge in rematch, but he lost some reflexes and abiltiy to take punch after. The layoff of only five months was mistake and carless of his management.
