But Foreman and Frazier were not claim unbeaten pro records as a reason for Greatness. Marciano's record is such, that the only way you can put a serious argument together for greatness is if his '0' is untainted.Bt because he was paid as an amateur and switched status twice, he has not got an untainted pro '0'.
