Rocky Marciano was the greatest of all time. 49-0. Most of them knockouts. Nobody else has done it.

I read that his strongest punches in his prime were comparable to an armor piercing shell hitting a wall lol.

The way he often punched people right out of the ring/through the ropes is quite astonishing.

They said no one trained harder either. and his jaw was made of iron. He was dropped a few times, once by Jersey Joe Walcott, Ezzard Charles and the great light Heavy Archie Moore. He got off the floor and KO'd all of them. Said he wasnt hurt none by walcott. "Caught me off balance." He dug ditches as part of his training regimen and punched underwater.



This is what he did to walcott.


Ezzard Charles and Archie Moore gave him his toughest fights. Charles split his nose down the middle.

He rules. It woulda been awesome if he coulda fought Butterfly Boy Ali.

I think Marciano in his prime VS. Ali in his prime would've ended with Rocky FLOORPUNCHING Ali through the ring.

A lot of people feel passionate on both sides of that argument. They say Ali was just too big for him. The "Rock" weighed in at 190. But Joe frazier weighed in at 209, I like the Rocks chances as a puncher myself. But Ali was awesome in his prime and the Rock had trouble with the boxers. Like Charles Moore and Walcott. He destroyed old Joe Louis but ole Joe had denture cream and geritol in his gym bag by then.

Default RE: who would winn

I love ali and all ,but the Brockton block buster. At 190 he hit people like
he was a bus ,have you seen any of his fights? That guy threw rocks like no one before or after . I would have to say if ali played rope a dope with this little giant, ali would be the dope through the ropes. No mater how great a boxer has ever been they always got hit . They did call him blockbuster for a reason.I honestly think ali would have retired (drooling)
Right after this battle. I love it boxing chat. You guys r the best..

September 1985, Holmes lost the crown to undisputed world light heavyweight champion Michael Spinks by a close decision. This loss was particularly galling for Holmes because had he been victorious against Spinks, he would have tied the record of Rocky Marciano in winning his first 49 professional fights as a heavyweight with no defeats. Holmes was criticized by many for comments he made after the fight, saying: "If you want to get technical about it, Rocky [Marciano] couldn't carry my jockstrap."
On April 19, 1986, Holmes lost a rematch with Spinks by a disputed split decision. A bitter Holmes told the judges to kiss his "big black ass," and retired from the sport.
In 1988 at age 38 He made a comeback and was knocked out by Mike Tyson in 4.
He angered a lot of people when he disrespected Marciano. I like Larry but I was glad he got dumped by Spinks.
