I'm a big fan of Marciano. But all the guys who fought Rocky were either old or not really a serious threat to beat him. Charles & Walcott were old & they still gave him trouble. That right there is a big deal to me.

I'll take Tunney by a decision. Of the two, I like Rocky much more, but I have to respect Tunney's talent.
Thank you for being honest and objective. Rocky was a great fighter but sometimes people's loyalty and biased views cloud their intellect and judgement.
