That's awesome. But I don't have cable so I can't watch it, lol. I might go to probably a friend's house or something to watch it.

Johnson does not have many fights left on film. I dont see how they can have Johnson on ALL day. I sure these fights are complete, but like 5 fights made it today.

Dempsey can get by with his 7 fights I belive, I do have most of his fights complete, even Gibbions and Tunney 2 lol. and of couse 8 rounds of Tunney 1.

Would want Dempsey next. Than I dont KNOW how they spread out a all day thing on Johnson.

Yeah I a big Marciano fan.

People should watch it so they know what the **** there talking about..
Once they know what they're talking about they won't be bad mouthing him..

There's no need to bad mouth the Rock. One of the all time greats. But I notice this site as the WORSE bad mouthing of the Rock EVER.

I'd like to see more ringsides on fighters in lower classes. So far, it's been Ray Robinson and heavyweights. Of course, the only other non-heavyweight they'll show is Ray Leonard, but it's nice to dream.

If I had my way butterfly you would be strapped into a chair Clockwork Orange style and forced to watch hours of the same grainy footage of Jim Jeffries, Corbett, and Tom Sharkey over and over again. How about a ringside of that?!?!

Dempsey1238
06-15-2006, 09:56 PM
I agree lol. IMO, Seeing a run of Rocky Marciano ALL day is BETTER than Ali. and Besides Ali already got his ringside.

I bet when Fraizer gets his ring side, They WONT have the Ali Fraizer 1 fight lol.

I WANT you Butterfly to WATCH it, or I make you WATCH it.

06-15-2006, 10:17 PM
IMO Reason Marciano's ringside is better is because Ali's fights are constantly played on ESPN Classic, I think twice I've seen a Marciano fight Aired randomly...So it'll be a good chance to see some of his fights on the tv..

Dempsey1238
06-15-2006, 10:28 PM
and WHEN THEY DO AIR a Marciano fight, what fight is being Aired??/

You guess it, Marciano Walcott 1 and Marciano Moore. Thats IT.

Ali gets

Cooper, Fraizer 3, Jones, Chalvo and COUNTLESS other reruns, oh yeah Wepner, Oscar and others. Thats what like 7 fights reshow compare to the Rock's 2 lol.

Wrong. On ESPN Classic I've seen Marciano-Louis, Marciano-Walcott I, Marciano-Charles I, Marciano-Charles II, Marciano-LaStarza II, and Marciano-Moore. That's more than two fights. :rolleyes:

Did you see a special or something?
Aired Randomly the most common Marciano fights are
Marciano v Walcott
Marciano v Walcott II
Marciano v Moore


its like they're favorites or something- I've never seen the bold on television.

Nope, it wasn't a special. They don't show these fights as often as let's say Ali or Tyson fights, but they do show them from time to time.

Yeah thats about all they SHOW,

And they never show the bold from what I see.

I never saw Marciano Charles 2 on Espn expect from Ringside's top ten heavyweights.

I have the fight of couse, but they never show it.

That punch was amazing. (The one landed on Walcott)
Probably the best straight right hand of all time.
For a guy that small, he had unreal power to KO TOP COMPETITION with one punch.
Awesome.
Im from Mass, so im a big Rocky fan.

Believe it or not guys, I wish they would do a Larry Holmes ringside. I really think he is way too underrated.
