Default Kid Gavilan said he wanted to fight Marciano in 1954

He said he could beat him.

Yeah, and he wasn't even a true 155 in that fight, nevermind the 165 he would need to be to beat Marciano.

He is very lucky he was never put in against Marciano. I don't think he'd be able to last 30 seconds.

Good thing he lost to Olson then cos i doubt Rocky would show an ounce of restraint on the Keed.
