I am not going to win this argument because too many disagree for the moment. But if it gets just a few thinking they have been spun by history, then eventually Marciano's '0' will be taken with a large pinch of salt.
There is not spin. If we bring in amateur records, then others will have as much or more explaining to do. He lost a few fights by decision when much less esperienced than his opponents. Larry Holmes
was knocked out twice by Nick Wells. Ali was knocked out in the
amateurs. Frazier was beaten by Buster Mathis. Tyson by Henry
Tillman. We should throw all these into the mix in evaluating this men?
