Default Rocky Marciano is very overrated IMO

Honestly...

This guy was not great...maybe in his era...

but he was Overrated!

Especially his fight with Joe Louis...Joe Louis was like a OLD OLD OLD Grandpa only fighting to pay off his taxes! He didn't want to fight...

It took Marciano 9 whole ****in rounds to KO him?

Damn...

Joe Louis would DESTROY Marciano his prime..

If you've actually seen their fight, Louis still gave Marciano some trouble with his jab. If you've seen Marciano's KO's and Louis's KO's, Louis's are done in a grand, perfect fashion, while Marciano's are wild, powerful punches that land good.

yes. he is very overrated. he is not even a heavyweight. he is a 185 pound cruiserweight. any good 200+ pound fighter in their prime would crush him!

He was intimidating to every opponent he faced. He had so much power that he could hurt your shoulders with one single punch.

Love him or hate him he's undefeated and one of the best fighters of all time. Sure he was reckless and didn't appear to have much skill, but he was 185 pounds fighting against guys that outweighed him by at least 15 pounds. That is pretty incredible when you think about it.
