If he went 1-1 with Charles or hypothetically 2-1 with Charles then he would still be remembered almost as highly.
Rocky is universally known now.
You have implied on numerous occasions he wouldn't if he had 1 loss to Charles.
Fact is, he would. And he'd still be held in very high regard.
He's already got an argument now, without a win over Marciano, yet, you can't justify him being there if he had a win over a Top 10- for arguments sake Top 15 Hw (without 2 wins over Charles) in Marciano?
I'm going to have to ask for the point there. Again.
As opposed to your last response that said he wouldn't.
You said "Marciano wouldn't have dominated his era if he went 1-1 with Charles"
Yet, you claim Lennox Lewis dominated his era going 1-1 with two bums.
Although, we've now cleared up that Rocky would have infact dominated his era whether he went 1-1 with Charles or not.
Which of course in effect de-bunks your theory that Marciano would not be held in high regard had he gone 1-1 with Charles.
And as for Lennox Lewis not losing to anyone on Marciano's resume? I find that unfair to say with such conviction.
Fact is, Lennox Lewis could easily have lost to a fighter of Ezzards Charles calibur.
The man got knocked into row Z by Hasim Rahman for crying out loud.
It helps him considering who he beat, with such consistency.

Having Charles 1 is fine.
However if you have him at 5 or so. A win over Marciano does not justify sticking him up 4 places.
That's all I'm saying. Marciano's level does in fact go down if he loses to Charles. Charles was a Light Heavyweight and past prime. Rocky's biggest thing going for him is that he beat everyone there was to beat. That's the thing that makes up for him being in a weaker era.
I've just been saying odd **** in a bid to defend myself from a beatdown here.
