Charles beat a prime Moore 3 times. Marciano beat an aged Louis who'd already previously retired once. There's no correlation here. When you throw in the fact that Charles's resume at the weight outside of their series equals Moore's than it's quite clear why he'd rank above him. He never won the title because he was never given a shot at it, despite beating everyone there was to beat. You can't fault him for that, especially considering he beat the #1 guy multiple times in emphatic fashion.
