Marciano, I don't think he is the greatest or could beat many of the ATG's but my uncle used to tell me stories when I was a kid about his determination and how his limitations didn't hold him back because he had that detemination and a big heart. When I was getting into boxing I found a video tape of some his fights at a video rental store and talked the guy into selling it to me. I watched it twenty times.

Marcino because I'm physically very similar to him and therefore had to adopt a similar style to get around the disadvantageous of a freakishly short reach. I figured that if Marciano could go out there and become champion of the world then it was possible for me to become a competent boxer.
