I think Rocky had his share of guys who visited the isles with the pop corn venders as well, lets not forget that. No doubt Sonny had power but other than Patterson and Foley who were KO'd before and after and Williams and DeJohn who were KO'd before and after by 185lb guys .....who was his best quality KO, who was his best quality win?

Funny how Marciano is reduced to a guy that comes into the ring and puts out his chin to be hit and has the short arms of a Tyrannosaurus Rex with only strong legs to hold him up.

I think 43 guys would and did say those short arms were effective indeed and we know the other 6 (some of them the same guys) were never as good in the rematch or subsequent fights.
