Marciano was only down twice. A perfect left hook from Walcott... Marciano broke him down and stopped him in the 13th. He stopped him in the 1st in their rematch. Moore dropped him as well... he dropped Moore 5 times and stopped him in the 9th. He never lost, therefore he was never stopped. Walcott and Moore punched harder than Ali and Martin.

On the other hand... Liston got his jaw broke by Marty Marshall and lost by decision. He was down and out vs. Ali (rematch) and Martin. He was also stopped by Ali in their first fight. Yeah, yeah, Ali didn't have Liston out but he did drop him clean despite what many people say.

Marciano went 6-0 (5) vs. Hall of Famers Louis, Walcott x2, Charles x2, and Moore. Liston beat 1 Hall of Famer... Patterson x2.
