    We are in danger of going off topic here.

    Obviously Cockell is a metaphor for Loughran in this instance.

    Like Mariano, Carnera was answering a challenge from his #2 contender.

    Like Marciano, he saw off the challenge very convincingly, and it was seen as a low risk fight for him.

    Marciano would have destroyed Carnera, Primo would never have been world champ during the 50`s.

    Now that is an interesting question.

    While I rate every champion of that decade, significantly higher then Carnera, he would have had a considerable size advantage over all of them.

    He would have been able to give Charles or Walcott or Marciano a difficult night, just by leaning on them.

    That would have given them something to think about.
