This is where the Rock's emergence echoes that of Mike Tyson.. Both appeared on the scene when all the good guys were past it, & the others simply weren't good enough.. I wouldn't criticise either fighter for knocking out everyone put in front of them.. It's just the way father time dealt the pack.. But I would suggest that it effects where they stand in an ATG list..
For example, if Marciano & Tyson had KO'd Louis & Holmes in their primes, then they'd both be in the top 3 on most lists..
