I remember seeing a photo (I forget which fight) of Rocky landing a punch & it was just perfect, every muscle working in union.

He achieved leverage like Ive never seen from any other fighter.

I love Joe but Rocky hit harder.

Breaking blood vessels = bruised

I'd go with the Suzie Q as the biggest punch, but I certainly don't want to taste a Fraziers Hooooooooooooooooooooooook

If Frazier had hit as hard as Marciano, he would have been almost unbeatable.

Rocky broke bones and blood vessels...smashed Lee Savold's teeth into his gums....sheared Rex Layne's teeth off at the nubs...almost killed Carmine Vingo....came out of his coma and never fought again...Roland LaStarza had broken vessels in his arms along with bones chips from Marciano's assault..he had surgery to remove blood clots that formed in his arms....The Rock ruined some fighters..and it took some months to get over a beating administered by Marciano...

Not exactly (I think it was a left hook) but illustrates my point perfectly.
Beautiful photo.
Call me a Philistine but which fight is that?

Frazier would benefit more from a chin like Holy, than from a power-boost.

Marciano-LaStarza II, near the end. That's a photograph of the punch Rocky knocked him down through the ropes with. Roland did well to get up at Ruby Goldstein's count of five. Referee Goldstein called a halt after Marciano unloaded 15 more unanswered shots following the knockdown.
