Exactly...and we must remember Marciano had a powerfull left hook and doubled up with it real well, Marciano had two hands and an awkward style that Ali would have trouble timing, Bonavena and Mildenburger were no Marciano but there awkwardness made Ali look bad and I repeat Marciano was a much more brutal puncher and a fighter that had the WILL to win and stamina over 15. I see this fight as being competitive but those who see it being a mismatch for Ali, simply know nothing about Marciano or are not being realistic in regard to Ali
