    Dude, you're like Milošević refusing to accept that he lost the election to Koštunica.

    Where in the last 100 years did we have another:
    Ali
    Foreman
    Louis
    Tyson
    Wilder
    Walcott


    Exactly. Now say sorry and go eat 8 blueberries.

    Maybe Wilder, if he could reach his chin. He would bust his body up bad though and Szpilka who is no Marciano was having lot of success in their fight.
    How tall was Bonecrusher Smith? He could go into a shell sometimes. Bugner is a good shout.

    6'3"-215lb-78"reach
    6'4"-222lb-78 1/2"reach
    6'2"-204lb-76"reach
    5'11"-220lb-71"reach
    6'7"-225lb-83"reach
    Nothing special

    Four of them had speed, 5th had power, reach and size. Where again is the medium quick short arm

    5'10 1/2"-185lb-68"reach

    juggernaut to take over the HW devision?

    Exactly. Now lay down comic and rainbow glasses and pick up sudoku.

    Marciano never could reach his chin,literally impossible, and a slow 186 pounder would be meat for a long explosive puncher like wilder, it would be very similar to Duran vs hearns with a much bigger size difference

    Hearns was far more skilled than Wilder. Marciano would also dip low utilizing his size better than Wilder does. Wilder is that bad that I believe Marciano could win this. Now against Wlad or Lewis no shot, but Wilder is horrible.

    You are exaggerating it. Marciano would get destroyed by Wilder

    Joe Bugner would be a tall order, perhaps Ernie Terrell, he would attack that thin torso.

    I would interchange the indicated weights for Foreman and Wilder, Foreman was perfect at 225 against Norton in one of his best fights, but Wilder proved to be more effective at 212,214 and 217 in his best fights defending the title.
    Also george had a body that could carry more weight,wilder is very very narrow
