Yes, but you could look at the LaStarza fight was one in which only bad luck for Marciano made it as close as it was. A foul took a round away from Marciano and gave it to LaStarza, a two round swing. Without that foul, Marciano would have won a unanimous decision. Also, the knockdown did not count for anything as the fight was scored on rounds.

And, I might ask. Why was he lucky against Walcott? He knocked him out. The same with Charles. Yes, theoretically he could have lost, but he pulled out the fights by knockout.
