Default Re: Buster Douglas vs. Rocky Marciano

Patterson was still fighting at a lightheavyweight in 55. He was not in the top ten in 55 or in April 56 the year Marciano retire. 4 months later the title was still vacated and Patterson was fighting Moore for the title. Marciano did (With the help of Moore and Charles of couse) clean out the divsion. From 55 to April 56, there relly was no one that could have been worth a title shot. Who was there?? No one. Marciano clean out the divsion. And only Joe Louis and perhaps Ali and and Tyson could make such a claim of totally cleaning out the heavyweight divsion like Marciano did.
