Re: How much would a Marciano win over Floyd Patterson in 1956 do for his legacy?
Ingemar Johansson, Tom Mcneeley, Roy Harris, Pete Radamacher...what do all of these men have in common? All of them knocked floyd patterson down. Johnasson knocked patterson out. Can you imagine what a stronger, much better puncher in Marciano would do to floyd?
Marciano did not throw wide shots either, he threw short punches(especially in his latter career) and was quite crafty in his crouch. He also threw non stop punches and had the durability to take pattersons best punch in order to land his own.
