Default Marciano considered a heavy hitter?

I mean back in rockys time they used 6 ounce gloves, so I guess he was a heavy hitter in his day. But now? Idk compared to all the heavy hitters after him, I dont think he is a heavy hitter now.

i think dempsey,joe louis,tyson,wladimir were/are much harder punchers than rocky ever was.
but rocky had great stamina, and could threw 15 rounds long powerpunches.
soon or later his opponents were hurt.
if rocky would have fought sonny liston in 55, he would be 49-1 now.
he was smart to retire without getting beat by the big bear

Liston was struggling with light heavyweights like Marty Marshall in 1955. He was still very crude and amateurish at that point, until coming back from jail in 1958 when Marciano was already long retired.

Dempsey admitted that Rocky was a harder puncher than he was.

Rocky's thing was to wear down opponents with non stop numbing blows, and YES, he was a hard & relentless hitter with both hands.. However, I wouldn't say he had early one shot killing power like Liston, Tyson or Foreman..

A fight between Liston and Marciano would have been legendary.. Had that been the Rock's 50th fight, I think he may have retired with a blemish.. Prime for prime though, I'd back Marciano to take his heart..

big bad Charles "Sonny" Liston would have bludgeoned Marciano,I can't think of a greater mismatch than Sonny Liston against Louis,Frazier,Dempsey and Marciano especially.

An obvious dig at Liston here,guess what Malone? Liston wasn't in his prime against Cassius Clay.Prime Sonny Liston didn't quit and he would never even be in a position to quit against Marciano.

The thread's about Marciano, you spanner.. At what point did I bring Clay into it?.... But now you come to mention it lol, I'll play your silly guessing game & assume that you think Liston was prime when he beat Patterson the 1st time, but not prime when he lost the 1st time to Clay?
