Default Who ranks higher: Rocky Marciano, Ricardo Lopez, Joe Calzaghe

Where would you rank the 3 from best to least? They all retired undefeated, despite their questionable opposition.
I think Marciano ranks the highest out of the 3, but I honestly don't know who ranks higher between Lopez and Calzaghe.

Calzaghe beat more established fighters in a more established division. Lopez exhibited awesome technical skills, but whats the divisions he fought in that could be compared to Kessler & Hopkins?

What the ****! Is there really a comparison between Calzaghe and Marciano in terms of record and achievement?!

Relax, Pete. Calzaghe is somewhat Italian too. You're safe, brother.

Lopez, The Brockton Blockbuster then Calzaghe IMO, but all were at the very least excellent, with Lopez arguably going down as an all time great.

Manfredo would've ****ed Calzaghe's shit up if not for that outrageous stoppage. Too strong, too tough, too Italian.

I would pick Marciano because he was a smallish heavyweight and going undefeated in an unlimited weight class strikes me as more impressive.

Marciano's opposition wasn't questionable.

Lopez would be #1 out of those three. You can see his greatness through his boxing. It was.a.work of art seeing him box.

Marciano clearly.
And there's nothing questionable about his opposition.
