Default Re: Charles (Marciano 1) vs. Roy Jones (Tarver 1)

To be fair, Charles was well and clear on the slide himself by the time he fought Marciano
Charles was past his prime, but he showed up probably in the best shape he had been in since he lost the title...and was hungrier than he had been in years. Charles of june 17th 1954 probably fought his best fight since maybe 1951. I am talking specifically about the Charles of the first marciano fight, he was an amazing fighter that night..fast, skilled, crafty, couragious, unbelievable stamina, great chin.
