I've read a lot about Rocky Marciano. As you know... I hope to be a latecomer to Pro Boxing. I hope to get a ****load of Amateur Fights until my belt next year... get super fit... strong... have a powerful punch... and try and make the 2008 Olympic Boxing Team and win a Bronze Medal or a Gold Medal (SILVER DOESN'T COUNT FOR ME... YOU LOSE THE LAST MATCH) in the Middleweight Division. When the Olympics is over... I turn Pro at 23. If I don't make The Olympics... I still hope to turn Pro at 23 in the year 2008. But enough about me... I've read a lot about Rocky Marciano. He didn't box much at all during his teen years. He played Sport. He got into the army. He was in Amateur comps in his early 20s. He turned Pro at... wait for it... 23!:cheeky4:He became Heavyweight Champion and defeated many greats in the boxing world. He was undefeated... UNDEFEATED!!! He died the day before his 46th Birthday in a plane crash which is very sad. A Computer Simulator Test Thingy claimed that if he (in his prime) took on Muhammad Ali (in his prime)... he would win!!! But on top of all of that... most of what I hear about Marciano's in terms of his boxing style... isn't exactly anything special. Boxing critics often said that he was "SLOWER" than most of his opponents. Keep in mind that Rocky was only 5'10".... and he was slower? He also weighed less... during his prime he was between 185-194lbs. Yet... he was strong... real strong... so strong he'd knock out most of his opponents. Every single Rocky Marciano piece of information I've come across have simply referred to him as a "BRAWLER" or a "SLUGGER" or "THE ONE PUNCHER"... hoping for that one big move to knock his opponent down. So although he was undefeated... and considered to be the greatest by some... was Rocky Marciano simply just a brawler/slugger and nothing more? No speed, agility, quickness or Finesse???
