People just can't figure that Marciano was different animal than today fighters,he was non stop punching power machine.Like Archie Moore said one time about George Foreman comeback:'Sure that George can be champion again.There is not heavyweights like Marciano today.'
I think Moore was talking about Marciano his willpower and not his physical size/strength
