Jersey Joe Walcott KO'd with 1 punch twice
Archie Moore was stopped with 2 left hooks
Harry Mattews was stopped with 2 left hooks
All this opponents were rated in the top 5 or above when Marciano fought and beat them. Please show me another Heavyweight champ who can say the same thing.
PS I guess Foreman was an attrition puncher too because he never KO'd anybody with a single punch
