People are silly.

I also find Marciano nigh unbeatable at this weight. However, a ridiculous power puncher like Langford would have the best chance, not some incredible cutie/slickster. Though he wasn't the leather sponge some make him out to be, Marciano did get hit and hit fairly often. People who fought Langford said he harder than all his contemporaries, even guys like Wills and Dempsey.

I'm hedging but leaning toward Langford today. I think his KO of Wills is better than any two results put together that Marciano achieved.
