Peter McNeely is up there. I remember him having some rediculous amount of first round KO's to his credit against 3rd rate opposition. His super padded record is one of the reasons he got the Tyson fight.

Tommy morrison's record was not built fighting nobodys some of his early fights but he knocked most of them out better than tyson did. He beat Foreman,Ruddock,Pinklon thomas in 1 round,James Tillis the quickest Tillis had been knocked out.

marciano has the most overrated record in hw history. he never lost, but if he was that good then how come he doesn't look better on film? he was very slow, clumsy, and small, so if a guy like that never loses, then you know he didn't fight anybody special. :cool:

Didnt fight anyone special? Rocky Marciano has one of the most impressive resumes in any divisions history.

-Archie Moore -------------- Recognized as top 5
-"Jersey" Joe Walcott twice - One of the top 10
-Joe Louis ------------------ Recognized as best boxer in history
-Phil Muscato
-Freddie Beshore
-Harry "Kid" Matthews
-Ezzard Charles (Twice)
-Roland LaStanza (Twice) --- One of the top five chins in history

Its not just that he fought legends, he beat them all, mostly by KO.

Rocky Marciano has the highest percentage of KOs than any other boxer in history at 88%. We already came to a conclusion that its more impressive than George Foremans record of his fist 49 fights as Rocky Marciano fought 2X's as many legends and even more iron chins.



Rocky Marciano had his own defensive style of boxing, it was sloppy looking, but incredibly successful. It was much harder to land any punch on Marciano as he would duck more throw his body back and jump around than what it would seem. Check out his moves here.

http://www.geocities.com/Colosseum/Arena/1047//Rocky13.html

Seems to me these facts speak louder than anything else. Marcianos age difference is actually lower than all of the other legends when they won their titles.

Their was a ten year age difference between Moore and Marciano, significant but not nearly as bad as some of the above, and they are more well known that Marciano.

Check this out, Floyd Patterson was 21 years younger than Archie Moore and Archie KOed him by the fifth round. This happened after Marciano KOed Archie Moore.

http://www.fighttoys.com/Moore%20record.htm

And it took Tyson 12 rounds, in his prime, to win a fight with James Smith by desicion. Tyson was 14 years younger than James Smith

http://www.fighttoys.com/Tyson%20record.htm
If you think winning a desicion over James Smith, who the hell is that, with a 14 year age difference is more impressive than KOing a man 10 years older than you that has gone down in history as one of the finest men in boxing you are the most biased person on these boards.

in 1969 Marciano had an exhibition match when at 46 years old with a much younger Muhammad Ali who had was already established himself as the greatest. The 46 year old Marciano beat Ali. You can argue the computer was wrong, we all know computers are unreliable.

-Top 5 greatest chins in boxing history along with, Joe Grim, Jake Lamotta, and i forgot other two.
-Highest knockout percentage than any other heavyweight champion in history - 88% only other person to come close was George Foreman with 87%, then it drops to 60's.
-looks funny on old film, but Louis, and all of the other champions all said the same thing, he is incredibly difficult to hit.
-Louis, Walcott, and George Foreman all placed him as number 2 boxer in the history of the sport.
-The arguement about Marciano beating champs after they are past their prime is absoulte garbage, do you know when he beat Louis there was a 9 year difference, but when Louis, Walcott, Tyson, Ali won the title they all won it from boxers with more of a age difference? Its all true.
-Marciano was only like 187lbs, much smaller than most heavyweights of the time, but still beat them all, 88% by KO.
-P4P best boxer in human history? Definatley of heavyweight division. Only Louis could beat him, which he failed too do twice.
-He beat the best that ever lived.
-when he was 46 years old he beat Ali in a exhibition fight that was deterrimined by computer, noone can say it was incorrect. He died shortly after.

Marciano is a good puncher and he's hard to hit. He has a funny style.

He's a good fighter. Better than most people realize. He's strong and young and hard to hit.

asked where Marciano had improved most between the first and second fights:
In defense. It was harder to get at him... Rocky fools you. He doesn't take as much punishment as it seems. He looks easy to hit inside but he isn't.

Others
He fools you. When you loook at him from outside the ring he seems easy to hit but if you're in the ring with him you find this isn't the case. His head is bobbing and he's crouched low, so low in fact that you can't get a clear shot at him.

He ain't easy to hit as they say. Rocky rolls under punches and he weaves under punches... He protects his belly by blocking punches with his elbows.

Ali said he was surprised at how hard it was to land a hit on Marciano when they had the exhibition, the computer match.
http://www.geocities.com/Colosseum/Arena/1047//Rocky13.html


Arguement that Marciano only beat people past their prime.
Taking the title from older men:
You would think Marciano was the only champion who recieved his title shot against an older opponent, to hear some critics howl. Let's take a little look at boxing history and see if anyone else beat up an old man to become the champion. Hmmm....

Marciano was 9 years younger than Walcott
But...
Dempsey was 13 years younger than Willard
James J. Jefferies was 12 years younger than Bob Fitzsimmons
Louis was 12 years younger than Braddock
Ali was 10 years younger than Liston
Holmes was 6 years younger than Norton
Spinks was 11 years younger than Ali
Tyson was 14 years younger than Trevor Berbick (WBC Champion)
Tyson was 12 years younger than James "Bonecrusher" Smith (WBA Champion)
Jim Corbett was 8 years younger than John L. Sullivan

So, the average age difference for these championship fights was 11 years. Rocky therefore had less of an age factor advantage than Dempsey, Jefferies, Louis, Ali, Spinks, Tyson, and Corbett.

Non-title fights:
Marciano was 10 years younger than Archie Moore
But wait....
Ali was 19 years younger than Archie Moore!!!
Patterson was 21 years younger than Archie Moore!!!!
Joe Louis was 9 years younger than Max Schmelling. (Max KO'd Joe and was later KO'd by him)
Louis was 12 years younger than Jack Sharkey
Ali was 8 years younger than Henry Cooper
Ali was 7 years younger than Patterson

Punching power
Joe Louis, knocked out by Rocky in the 8th round, said of Marciano, "It hurt to bump into him....He hits harder than Max Schmeling...this kid is tough enough to beat anyone."
He also said, "The Rock didn't know too much about the boxing book, but it wasn't a book he hit me with. It was a whole library of bone crushers."
Jersey Joe Walcott, who lost his title to Marciano in a 13th round KO and a rematch in a 1st round KO, was asked who hit harder, Joe Louis or Rocky Marciano. "Joe could take you out with combinations...Marciano was a one-punch artist. He threw every punch like you throw a baseball, as hard as he could. I have to say, with all respect to Joe, Marciano hit harder." Ezzard Charles "Rocky numbs you all over. Wherever he hits you, he hurts you; on the arms, the shoulders, the neck and the head." Archie Moore (KO'd in 9th), when asked by reporters which of Marciano's punches hurt him, said, "Man they all hurt."
He also said, "After a fight with Marciano, it felt like you had been beat all over the upper body with a blackjack or hit with rocks."
"He could hurt you, sure, but it was the quantity of his punches. He just had more stamina than anyone else in those days. He was like a bull with gloves." Roland LaStarza "I would throw a hard punch, then he would throw a hard punch. The difference was that Rocky would throw 10 more. He just never stopped throwing punches."

How could a 5'10 185lb man be so powerful? He was simply the most conditioned fighter to ever enter the ring. Noone will argue with you on that one. He was 185lbs but more powerful than most 200+lb punchers. :boxing: :boxing:

Rockys toughness
In their second fight, Ezzard Charles missed an uppercut and hit Marciano with his elbow, splitting his left nostril wide open.
"It's split in half," Goldman graoned in the corner. "How we gonna stop the bleeding?"
"You ain't," Allie Colombo shouted. "There's no way you're going to stop that. Rock, you gotta get him! You gotta get him, or they could stop the fight!"
"Go after him now or you'll bleed to death," Goldman told Marciano.
In a fury, Rocky charged out of his corner, blood flying, and battered Charles to the mat. Ezzard gamely rose at four, but Marciano was relentless, knocking him out with a furious combination of punches.
"It was amazing," New England promoter Sam Silverman said. "The fight couldn't possibly have gone another round without the referee stopping it. They just couldn't stop the bleeding. It had to be an elbow. No punch could make a cut like that. There was Rocky in the middle of a tough fight, but when he had to KO Charles, he did. It was unbelievable."

Tough punchers Marciano fought
Rex Layne, a powerful puncher, who knocked out 25 of his first 36 opponents. 69%
Harry "Kid" Mathews, with 61 KOs in 87 wins. 70%.
Archie Moore, the man who holds the record for the most knock outs of any fighter who ever lived; 145 KOs in 199 wins. 73%.
Walcott, 30 KOs in 50 wins, for 60%.
Joe Louis, 49 KOs in 63 wins, 78%
Eddie Ross 23 KOs in 26 wins at time they fought. 88%
http://www.geocities.com/Colosseum/Arena/1047//Rocky13.html

As you can see he fought some of the top punchers in boxing history.


How the legends ranked Marciano

5. Joe Frazier
6. Jack Dempsey
7. Mike Tyson

9. Floyd Patterson
10. Evander Holyfield


"Just look at Rocky Marciano's record. Nobody beat him. You can't take that from him. Only because he depended solely on his left hook do I rate Joe Frazier below Marciano. Marciano could hit with both hands."


1. Joe Louis
2. Rocky Marciano
3. Joe Frazier

Joe Louis is the greatest heavyweight champion of all time. Rocky Marciano is second only to Louis. Where do I rate Ali? Somewhere below me. I beat him, and if I could beat him, no doubt Joe Louis and Rocky Marciano could have beat him.

Just look at Rocky Marciano's record. Nobody beat him. You can't take that from him.

Moving this post to anaother, added to it and dont have enough room. Want to keep it all together.


u said it took tyson 12 rounds to take out bonecrusher. well obviously u didnt see the fight cause if u did u would know that bonecrusher ran the whole time and was akward. and when ever tyson would punch he would have his hands out so he couldnt really be hit flush. and he was going around in circles alot also. so to say that **** about tyson is dumb. u name me a great that koed all his opponents :rolleyes:

Errr, I already had this arguement..

No offense to Foreman but Marciano did fight more iron chins in his 49 fights than Foreman did in his
-Roland LaStanza twice
-Archie Moore
-"Jersey" Joe Walcott twice
-Joe Louis
-Phil Muscato
-Freddie Beshore
-Harry "Kid" Matthews
-Ezzard Charles (Twice)
-Roland LaStanza (Twice)
88% KO

Foreman's prime
-Joe Frazier twice
-Muhammad Ali
-Ken Norton
-Ron Lyle
89% KO

Honestly which is a more impressive KO ratio, dont be biased.

I liked Peter McNeely, he had balls lol....Watch his Tyson fight.

Yeah Cooney's record was crap, fighting fighters that were so over the hill they were under it.

Morrison's wasn't to bad, he was hyped up though. But you must admit, Ali's was somewhat hyped to, not as much as Morrison's but still, it was hyped to an extent.

ya know butterfly used to be ok but now he's just ignorant

i can't even read his posts with out laughing alittle bit at how ignorant he is, i don't usually say mean **** but why don't you stop being a nuthugger and look at facts

and btw Johnson has the most padded over hyped record ever, the only people he fought that are considered great are a very washed up James J Jefferies and Jess willard Nearly everybody else are bums so butterfly don't give me this **** that Johnson fought better guys or w.e because your just kidding yourself

Johnson was a an ok fighter thats boxing career was blown up cause he was black there is no other reason

yogi says he weighed about 170. and like i said, johnson weighed 180 so that's only 15lb.

Yogi said Choynski "weighed in the neighborhood of 165 to 170" when he fought Johnson, and that was in response to someone making a ridiculous claim that Choynski only weighed a buck-forty in that fight.

You havn't learned much have you?

Thats funny, because being white has always been a disadvantage upon public approval of a champion. People always make up excuses about white champions of how either, "they beat up bums," "the competition was not there," or "they got lucky." Well guess what! They took the belts from the previous champions and defended them from the challengers. Its the epitamy of racism. Dont start **** over race.

White champions dont receive the same public support as black champions, even you cant deny that.

Dont say its because of their nationality because everyone back Lennox Lewis, including myself, despi on Marciano read anout the age differences champions won the belt from. If you would you would realize that Marciano beat the greatest boxer with a lesser age difference than Ali, Tyson and all of the other legends. But strangely Marciano is accused to beating up older boxers, pfff. You cant have a double standard.

If Marciano were black he would be in your avatar.

so what if he beat louis? louis was a shot fighter, who wasn't that hot to begin with himself.

lol, if marciano was black, he would still get his ass kicked by ali, foreman, listton, tyson, lewis, etc.

marciano is only known as a top 3 hw because of his skin color an his padded record.
