What an interesting story; I didn't know he died in a plane crash at such a young age. Thanks for a well-rounded profile.

truly Rocky Maricano was a great fighter who trained well,Took on the likes of Jersey Joe a great powerfull boxer & Roland La Starza who Marciano really hurt him in his second fight.What people don't know,I mean the distractors is that in the championship fight against Walcott ,Rocky was blinded for 3-4 roundsby a unknown substance on Walcotts gloves& Walcott still could not take him down,he Walcott was winning on points.Had it been a 12 round and not 15 he would have won.But if you watch the fight Walcott was ready to set up a right until Rocky sent him to la la land with a hard right.If you look at a close up pictture you will see Marciano's eyes swollen closed from a substance on Walcotts gloves.I don't think on purpose,just one of those things.Marciano weight 184,with a 64 in. reach.With a punch like a armor bullet!He got in took his punishment but got stronger as the fight went on.A classic battle on u-tube against Ezzard Charles,two pro's!! 15 rounds.Rocky was only knock down twice in his career.He sent men to the hospital.La Starza a great fighter had his forarms broken,tendons torn.Vingo into a coma. Walcott unconcious.As Joe Louis said just walking into Rocky hurt.Ezzard Charles said after his fight he felt like someone work him over with a bag of coins and a hammer.

Marciano only fought two great fighters in his entire career, Joe Louis, and Jersey Joe Walcott, and both were well past their prime when he fought them.

La Starza was a bum, and Ezzard Charles was a decent fighter, but had zero power, and was even smaller than Marciano.

OK, so he beat a LIGHT-heavyweight who was 39 years old at the time.

While he was one of the the greatest fighters of all time, Moore never won a fight against a heavyweight champion.
