Rocky Marciano ATG fighter - Freedom. Thanks for thanking me! - Terry A

Rocky never wanted to fade. He started too old, and knew he'd have to come and go quickly to be the undefeated champ. He just simply wanted to forever retire the Sullivan belt.

Their high intensity style isn't ideal for longevity. It is very difficult to fight that way successfully too far past 30.

The only style that lasts long is pure boxing

Fighting like an angry bull ( marciano, frazier, tyson ) is a young mans way of fighting

Guys that could dance, move, pot shot, counter, jab jab jab like larry holmes stayed competitive into their 40s

Frazier didn't burn out fast in my opinion, He had a lot of hard tough wars, and he sacrificed a long, long career to bring us unforgettable memories. You'd have to burn out after so many long and intense fights with men usually bigger than him. ------------------------------------- I think Marciano retired BEFORE he had become burned out and could have at least three good fights left in him. Rocky's decision to retire is one of the most astute retirement decisions of any boxer ever. He had gone right through the division and was getting at that age where a fighter may suddenly fade in the space of a single fight. Marciano's retirement was well planned in advance,... he was only getting about 25% of the cut and had been ripped off for years. Al Weill had figured that with such a low cut of the available money would keep Marciano needing to fight for many years to come, even trying to make money out of him when a washed up has-been.... Rocky outsmarted Weill by saving every possible penny,.... and his family wanted him to retire......... These were Rocky's major reasons for his decision... and he deserved to be remembered as the great fighter he actually was.

Yeah there's a fair degree of truth in that first paragraph,...... but only if the boxer is a near-genius,... there's usually a slugger out there with the antidote for the Boxer.
