Default Re: Did Marcanio duck Patterson?

I don't believe that he did duck Floyd he was not a real contender at the time he just came good later. I've read that the plan was always for Floyd to fight at 175lbs and then eventually move up its just that when Marciano retired there was an opportunity and he took it remember Patterson won the Olympic gold at 160lbs.

Not to hijack the thread or anything but I always wondered if Joe Louis ducked Elmer Ray he as some solid win during Joe's title reign yet never got a title shot but people like Galento did.
