    Richard, you should always have been paying more attention to the smaller guys. :D

    Gone are the days when fighters appeared 12-16 times a year and rematches ATG’s on 4-5 occasions. That’s why you gotta love Buck Smith. That guy would drive around the country in his car looking for fights !!

    I agree, today's heavyweight wins one big fight and they are living legends, perhaps in their own minds.

    Them becoming legends or not is irrelevant. It’s about putting two guys in the same ring from different periods with one of them having significant advantages over the other.

    Advantages that are artificial?

    Marciano would be top 5 among heavyweights today.
    He'd weigh in with hidden weights to make the scales show well over 200 pounds, but he'd be 188 pounds in the ring.

    He beats everyone. Prove me wrong ....oh, you can't...so, maybe you should reconsider your decision to waste all your time here trying to convince people otherwise.....or not, it's your time, not mine.
