Rocky Marciano was a class act in and out of the ring. After stopping his hero Joe Louis, he went to his dressing room crying and apologized. Thats the kind of man he was. If the Rock were around today would he be proud or ashamed of fans like Slimey Limey who denigrate people anf fighters Marciano had the utmost respect for?

As great as he was, this trend of downgrading and ridiculing the opponent really started with Muhammad Ali....there have been many imitators since then.

Slimes views are purely one dimensional.. I'm through with slaggin the guy (unless I've had a few JD's lol) cos he don't get it... It's not his fault.. I'm a firm believer that every brain has a weakness.. In Slimes case, it's the part that evaluates facts.. The frustration then activates his acute Tourette Syndrome..

Fans like that are the minority, Most of us are respectful, I for one respect every man who has the guts to enter the ring, and i respect the hell out of Joe Louis.

Ofcourse Rocky would be ashamed of some of these people who feel the need to trash talk other Great Fighters. Saying they were cowards etc... But in reality if these so called fans were told to box they would most likly die of fear while walking up the ring steps.


But as i said Most of us Rocky Fans are good People with good knowledge and respect not only the fighters but we respect the sport.

Most are respectful. Im a fan of his myself, but I just can't imagine a man who was so respectful of others ever condoning the disrespect spewed by some of these morons, and in his name.

I have serious doubts that a poster that calls himself Slimey Limey and acts like an ignorant arse most of the time, is actually a real Marciano fan at all.

Ali was not the first guy to downgrade and ridicule an opponent.

He was just more charismatic than the others and there's more film of his antics.

Tony Galento, for one, loved to talk *****. Joe Louis said the only guys he hated were Schmeling and Galento (he ended up being friends with both of them).

Max Baer was another one to, and it largely contributed to his downfall..
A lot of his clowning, was solely directed at the opponent while he showed off without concentrating on his boxing.. Ali just happened to be a better multi tasker than Baer..

I'm a big fan of quotes.. Love the one sent in by Rooster.. Hadn't heard that before!

I liked reading and watching about some of the things Jack Johnson did.

Sometimes he'd look at one of his girlfriends ringside and say "this guy can't do anything to me". He'd also speak in a psuedo English accent.

Yeah she still stinks up the joint every now and then till the facts get to heavy and she has to run for cover. Be assured she'll respond to this as flaming is much more important to her than actually talking boxing facts.

Max baer was a clown,
Muhammad Ali tried to get the mental edge, Make his opponents think his crazy.



Calling Joe Louis, One of the greatest Heavyweights in History a "Coward" is one of the biggest insults to our sport!!

It isnt even worth talking about, Nor giving these people a thread.



I respect people on this forum who show knowledge for our sport and people who show passion and respect for Boxing.


people who trash talk the greatest fighters isnt even a fan, They should go join a soccer forum or somthing.

You're doing a very good job impressing the Louis fans. Some advice to ya mate: use more exclamation points so it looks more real.

Btw moron, bumbeater was a coward for his behavior outside of the ring. It has nothing to do with him being a coward as a fighter, although he did quit. Oh wait, that actually does almost make him a coward for the way he quit against Schmeling.

But my point was that Louis was a woman beater who drank and used drugs, yet put on this face for the public to believe he was a perfect gentleman.

You see, Ali and Johnson never made their faults a secret. Louis and his team however were too affraid to show the real Louis.
