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.

134-1-1 when he fought Sandy Saddler the first time.

A close decision loss to lightweight champion Sammy Angott and a surprising draw with Jimmy McAllister which Pep avenged by KO in two rounds.

Those are good points, TheManchine.

Overall, I would have to agree Pep was the greater fighter, but because so many people unfairly discredit Rocky, I hate to vote against him.
