He was considered to be a weak champion in his own era, a placeholder who was not near as good as prime Louis or Dempsey or Johnson.
Its interesting how fighters are regarded in their own eras but discussed in another thread may be underrated in their time...marciano is hard to jusge because depending on the argument he:
1)beat up 3 of the best heavies ever in charles louiss and walcott
2) beat a light heavy, a corpse and got schooled by an old man before one punch saved him
Difference between top 10 and scraping top 20
