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

Marciano was knocked down for the first time in his career in the first Walcott fight in 1952.
..he was pounded...blinded for 4 rounds...cut and behind on all scorecards when he throws the best right hand ever...and wins the title...he goes 15 rounds with Ezzard Charles in a thrilling 15 round brawl...and then in the rematch 3 months later has his nose split open down to the bone...and fearing the fight will be stopped...storms out and saves the title with a big KO...those kind of fights had already cemented The Rocks legacy...
