If you want to watch some really good clips of Rocky Marciano's fights go to Google and click on video's. Then type in Rocky Marciano and submit it. Then click on the video that is 3 minuets, and 36 seconds, then it will become obvious why Marciano went 49 wins, 0 lost, 43 Knock Outs.

Marciano wasn't a very deliberate, but would miss a lot of punches. But it was his awesome stamina that kept him ahead of the game. He used to run up hills backwards, and doing punching exercises under water.

But he had tremendous power. He coul;d also take a good shot too. He was only knocked down twice in his whole career. There are also some clips on YouTube - Broadcast Yourself. and they are good too.

Yeah, so? Marciano still beat the piss out of him from rounds 5-9 (9 Moore got KO'd).

Bull****! He fought Don Cockell who was good (the british heavyweight champ) He fought Jersey Joe Walcot (who was in his prime) Archie Moore wasn't washed up at all. Marciano fought Roland LaStarza, Ezzard Charles. He NEVER EVER backed down either, he always fought the guy who challenged him. He had great power, he could take a good punch, and he had relentless stamina/attack.

PS why do you insist on bashing Marciano?

Walcot was not in his prime, and that goes for Moore and Charles. If they didn't come in crutches Marciano wouldn't fight them. LaStarza was rubbish. I have that fight. Anybody with any kind of decent talent troubled Marciano.

Bull****! Again! Why do you hate Marciano??? LaStarza was good, Walcot was obviously good, Ezzard Charles WAS In his prime. Ezzard was 2 years older than Marciano. I don't see why you go out of your way to bash Marciano. Its just wrong not giving him respect, let alone take it away from him.

I'm just yanking your chain. Rocky Marciano is one of the greatest fighting machines of all time. He beat guys that were better, stronger, faster, he was incredible. I loved the announcers in the old days better too. They actually knew something about boxing. The HBO crew is the worst in history!
