That dose not mean that all his subsequent amateur fights are converted into profesional fights by default. They were fought under amateur rules and sanctioned by amateur comissions.

It dosn't work like that.
It does when you claiming a perfect pro career. Marciano is saying I never loss a fight from March 1947 onwards, that is simply not true.

Sure the likes of Armstrong etc did the same thing, but unlike the Rock their greatness is not based on a statistical abnormality.
