Default Re: How much would a Marciano win over Floyd Patterson in 1956 do for his legacy?

Probably would solidify a top 5 legacy. Certainly if he would have added a victory over Valdes also.

I think even the slightest little details can have huge conseqences on the trajectory of events. Let alone something as major as a heavyweight title fight.
