I do know what a link is, your starting to get mouthy and I'm starting to get annoyed at it and probably say stuff I shouldn't so watch it ok? A link is the underlined or colored print that you click on and it takes you to another site. There are a unch of links in the video section. :mad: :mad: :mad: PS why don't you like Marciano? ITs obvious you have a problem with him because youve been dwelling on this topic ever since you joined the site.

Did Rocky Marciano Lose a Pro Fight Under Another Name?

Read it, and then stop saying he was undefeated, it bugs me.
An amerature loss doesn't count as a pro loss. Also Ali fought amerature after he turned pro, and he lost too. But does anyone mention that? NOPE!!! You just hate Marciano. Are you one of his old oppenents he KO'd in the first round and you are bitter about it?

In ameratures Rocky losst 4 fights, thats because if you knock the guy down it counts just as much as a jab. They score it by aggression, punches landed/blocked, and overall abilityu to not get hit, not by dominance.

That's the way it's scored today, BUT back when Rocky was an Amateur they scored it the same as Pro's.

I believe they changed the scoring system because of some Olympic bouts, such as Roy Jones, that were really bad. Now they just count the punches.

I Ring Announce a lot and donate my time to the Amateurs a lot and I really don't like this way of scoring. I think they should go back the way it was or give more points if one boxer floors or even hurts another one.

I have seen many Amateur bouts, that if it was the Pro's, they would have scored it the other way. As the Announcer, I would try to explain the scoring system, BUT I don't agree with it.

Ali came out out of the Olympics in 1960 and then turned Pro. He never returned to the Amateur ranks.

On the cover it shows Ali making a fist. The fist is only like an inch away from where the camera was too.

You should go undefeated,if you dont fight nothing but a bunch of old men.If he was such a great fighter why didnt he stick around to Sonny Liston came to town Liston would have beaten him down.
