Default Re: Rocky Marciano or Jack Johnson who was the greater fighter?

As a greater fighter its Rocky by a mile. Rocky showed guts, and pretty much gave all the top ranked contenders title shots. Johnson quit, low blowed DQ'd himself once after getting rocked in the first round by an in-experienced Jeanette, quit in a title fight with an arm injury vs a journeyman, and has a laundry list of excuses as to why he did not look so good.
I'd have thought that would make him P4P the best fighter ever in your eyes, surely?
