Default Re: Wladimir Klitschko vs. Rocky Marciano

Wlad has an elite amateur pedigree, has 60 fights under his belt, and has ruled the division for the better part of 7 years, or basically as long as Marciano's entire career in the fight game.
I made the comparison because the OP I replied to said that Wlad wins based SOLELY on weight without mentioning certain other, much more important things althought reading subsequent posts its obvious he didn't mean that. If weight and height is what wins fights then Valuev, Carnera and Abe Simon would be ranked as the greatest heavyweights ever as well as Jungle Jess.
