Arrow Roy Jones Jr Or Rocky Marciano? Who Greater?

Who do you think should be remembered as the greater fighter and why?

I had Jones at 29 and Rocky at 32 or 33 the last time I did a list. So I think it's very close and I don't have any objection to the fighters being ranked either way around.

Prime? Jones. Over the whole career? Marciano. The longer Jones lets his career go on, the lower he moves on the Whole Career list.

Head to head.......

I would go with RJJ in a 12 round fight,and Marciano in a 15 round fight.

Resume's are fairly even.

I really disagree with that. Roy could spend the next ten years killing himself getting KOed, and it doesn't change one thing he did at his best or how good he was. What he has done is what he has done, no amount of losses change that.

marciano was in shape at 200+ pounds and killed himself cutting down to 185-190. marciano was no ruiz. roy's height would mean nothing in that fight.
