Re: So what exactly is wrong with Nat Fleischer's top 10 heavyweight list?
It was pretty common for ATM's to get paid money in ALL sports. Some one has to pay for the ticket to the state(Even though in this case Marciano hitchhike there) or the lodgings for a hotel, food and stayings while they complete. You are relly going over board to try to turn these atm bouts into pro bouts. Even Wallace in Ring Magzine COMFIRM that his bout with Marciano was a Atm bout when they interview him in the mid 1990's.
