Yeah he is a bit, he KO'd mostly nobodies & a old Joe Louis. But we will never know how great he could have been, because of the lack of competition.

Moore, Charles, Walcott and Louis may have been old but they weren't bums.

LaStarza, Layne and Matthews were good fighters too. Every boxer back then respected Marciano, not sure why he is put down as often as he is these days.

Getting dropped my smaller heavyweight is nothing great. His chin never been tested by big hitters in their prime, Louis was way gone when he fought Marciano

Joe Louis was the same age at 37, as Vitali Klitschko is right now.

Difference is, Vitali's been inactive for four years due to injuries.

Do we expect Peter to KO Vitali like Marciano KOed Louis?
