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

Surely Marciano should get credit for these wins?
Of course he does get credit, but u have people here thinking he is invincible. he wasn't beating Liston, because best case scenario liston knocks him down 8,9, 10 times in a fight and it ends by stoppage. He wasn't moving out the way of liston's punches, which means he was eating them. 180 pound guy eating 215 pound mass of muscle punches = one knocked out 180 pound guy. I don'teven think any boxer could brawl toe to toe with liston unless they had equal power and more speed ie mike tyson.
