    That's arbitrary.

    For example:
    Purrity lost 5 of his first 10 fight, losing to every single person who didn't have a negative record.
    None of those people had more than 11 bouts.

    Did Marciano ever lose to someone like that?

    Who do you guys have winning?
    Ross Purrity in his first 10 fights.
    Or Humphry Jackson from the Rocky fight.

    All signs point to Humphry for the swift win.

    Want to look at Brewster and Sanders records?
    Many thought Marciano lost to Lowry, he had lost his last 7.

    Old Fatty Humphrey always crops up as evidence that Rocky can beat SHv's ."All the Kings horses " etc
    Lhvy Willis Applegate had won 2 of his last 12 fights , he went the distance with Rocky.

    Those are also guys he lost to, so not sure what you're getting at.
    Did Marciano ever get beat by a guy who got stopped in the first round of his second pro fight?

    I'm just trying to get my thread to 50 pages ,seeing as it's the last I shall make.
    What we are basically doing here is swapping stats to bolster our pov's and neither of us is a proving damn thing, but
    that's okay it's a bit of fun.

    Did Rocky ever go the distance with someone who he outweighed by 30 pounds?

    Ah okay.
    I was wondering why you were just throwing random stats out there so that makes sense.

    Wlad had a 21 (TWENTY ONE) year career. Rocky had a 7 (SEVEN) career. Do you really think Rocky is going to go any stretch of 21 years in the division's history undefeated? Really?
