Moore was a dangerous puncher but Marciano got up quick and Moore hit a deck pretty frequent from then till the end, he had a ton of heart and was always a danger, he was just in with a tougher guy

Marciano could take a better punch than Moore and was obviously better conditioned. The knockdown on Marciano was the only time I've seen him look hurt. Moore went down more from fatigue and punch accumulation.

Moore's bombs looked heavier to me than Marciano's.

Looks can be decieving, Liston looked thick and could punch but the look of him punching was impressive same with Moore and his big arms but there are guys like Julian Jackson, Bob Foster,Kelly Pavlick,Corrie Sanders who dont look like they can hit but CAN

I think it's safe to say Archie Moore could hit really, really hard.
