Default Re: Besides Hagler/Lennox Lewis/Calzaghe/Marciano, who else retired at the perfect ti

Yeah keep telling yourself that lol. Rocky did shit at heavyweight an came around at the exact right time. I watched that era at 26 probably more than you have. Some people have him at number 3 an 4 is a ****in

criticism of who Rocky faced demonstrates a poor understanding of his era.

To answer the question though my top 5 list would be:

Marciano
Tunney
Lewis
Monzon
Lopez

There are others who retired at a good time for their career but never quite received the recognition they deserved during it so an argument could be made the retirement was bad (like packey for instance)
