I'm not even sure this is true any longer. Note that Wlad's current unbeaten streak is longer than Marciano's entire career. Also, note that Marciano was nothing more than a regional fighter going up against some pretty awful opposition for the majority of his career. He capped off his run against some pretty middling old folks and light heavies in what must have been the weakest era in the division's history.

I'm beginning to think that, minus the rose-tinted mythology and the Italian American jizz fest, Wlad is truly the greater heavyweight.
