Rocky Marciano :D.

Rocco Francis Marchegiano (September 1, 1923 – August 31, 1969), best known as Rocky Marciano (/mɑːrsiˈɑːnoʊ/), was an American professional boxer who competed from 1947 to 1955, and held the world heavyweight title from 1952 to 1956. He is the only Heavyweight Champion to have retired undefeated as champion. His six title defenses were against Jersey Joe Walcott, Roland La Starza, Ezzard Charles (twice), Don Cockell and Archie Moore.

It's been a while since his death (RIP) but Pernell "Sweet Pea" Whitaker > Floyd Mayweather. Best defensive boxer ever and he was on drugs back when he was fighting.

I love Cotto and I think his fight with our very own Pacman was one of the most interesting fights ever.. It was a solid exchange of barrages and I fcking enjoyed it..

Sadly, he was technicaled by Floyd.

Tf?! Even katakuri wouldn't land a punch against him.. That's some highlevel defense. I mean, dodges...

I remember Cotto well. I started to follow him once he went and got trained with Freddie Roach. He was a very technical boxer but could also brawl as well like in some of his famous fights.

You should watch Cotto's fights with Margarito. First one was the best but Margarito cheated with illegal wraps on his hand but the second one Cotto TKO'ed him.

That's not even a block and weave style that Floyd uses, that's haki lol. He was the best fighter from the late 80's to the mid-90's until Roy Jones Jr. (OMG him as well)

Roy Jones Jr. At the height of his powers, he was almost untouchable--just a total freak of nature. He may not be as technically skilled as James Toney or as wily as B-Hop but his physical skills duting his peak covered up for his weaknesses. Just a sight to watch.

I honestly felt sorry after his fight Pacquiao. His face looked like a pinata. :lazybleed:

He was never the same after that.

Hoof... :catsweat:

He was otherworldly too fast and too quick for some of the greats. He was like Pacquiao at MW/LHW/HW. The guys you mentioned couldn't do anything with him and B-Hop WAS IN HIS PRIME when RJJ soundly beat him. He couldn't be touched like his song said.

Wilder simply was out boxed and beaten, if the towel wasnt thrown he would have been mauled to death

Fury won the rematch and hope a AJ match comes soon so Wilder can come back from this to settle a 3rd match later down the line

That 95% ko percentage didn't pay off this time. Lol. He was out boxed certainly. How many punches did he actually throw on Fury?

Those knock downs surely slowed him down big time. If it wasn't for the bell, he would've been knocked out that round.

If Wilder loses again, i wonder what BS he will blame it on like David Haye about his toe lol
