He was incredible; still love the whole idea that he was breaking down nerves in their arms. Thank you for posting.

The cold eye of historical perspective has rightly diminished the legend. Not by his own choice he fought a group of aging, past-it contenders and champs most of whom were natural light heavies. I am not sure I can think of another period of 8 years (really 7) post-Dempsey during which he would go undefeated in the heavyweight ranks.

A great fighter, a great fighter in the heavyweight class, not sure if I feel comfortable calling him a great heavyweight.

If Ali was great,If Louis was great, If Holmes was great, if Frazier was great then Marciano was truly great. Times have changed to the Super heavyweight and there have been a few excellent ones Lewis, Klitschko's and a few very good ones like Bowe but that is this era, in Marciano's era he was the best of the big men and despite the naysayers guys like Walcott,Charles,Moore were great experienced fighters and Champs or #1 contenders of the day

If the Super-heavyweight went back to Rocky's day they may have been picked off and if Rocky and the group were born today they would be bigger men....anyway Great is Great, good is good and Rocky was great.

Oh please. He fought a 38 year old who was champ, and still going strong. Ezzard Charles was still good, and had good fight in him, and LaStarza was in prime. Moore held title for 5 years after Marciano fight. He beat all of them in tittle bouts decisively.

You mean the light heavyweight title?

Marciano beat up a bunch of past-prime runts while wearing 6 ounce gloves.

So you consider him the greatest cruiserweight of all time?

Can you list your heavyweights whom you actually consider great?
