Default Re: Rocky Marciano vs. Sonny Liston

Baker would have been interesting and so would Valdes but Baker was KO'd by Archie in 8 and Satterfield in 1 round and Valdes blew the chance losing to Satterfeild in 1955, he got dropped bad for a 9 count and lost decisively and that was about a month before Marciano's last fight with Moore making Valdes much less marketable.....Floyd was still fighting at 166lb in the beginning of 1955, In fact his highest weight was 175 in 1955 until the end of the year December where Floyd weighed 178lbs vs Jimmy Slade, Marciano was already retired 4 months...Pastrano fought Archie at 185lbs and may have been a decent payday but like Suzie said he had no power....I think the division was pretty dry for money fights for Rocky
