That's not the reason Pep is better than Marciano though IF it ever even happened.

Pep is better because he had a greater resume and more longevity.

Marciano may have gone 49 fights without a loss but Pep was undefeated in his first 62. When Pep did lose to the lightweight champion of his time, he went another 73 fights without being defeated until he lost to Sandy Saddler. He also survived a near career ending plane crash.

Pep fought for 26 years while Marciano fought for 8 years.
