Default Re: Rocky Marciano Undefeated Tribute

The cold eye of historical perspective has rightly diminished the legend. Not by his own choice he fought a group of aging, past-it contenders and champs most of whom were natural light heavies. I am not sure I can think of another period of 8 years (really 7) post-Dempsey during which he would go undefeated in the heavyweight ranks.

A great fighter, a great fighter in the heavyweight class, not sure if I feel comfortable calling him a great heavyweight.
