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.
I'm not doubting Rocky's power. You guys just seem to think that Liston's entire fate is based on him controlling Marciano with the jab. You are then proceding to work off that to illustrate how Rocky would slip the jab, get inside and pummel Liston like he's a defensless ***** being ****d, which is utterly ridiculous.
