Rocky Marciano was pound for pound the greatest boxer to ever live

Rocky Marciano...

Impossible to determine. There are way too many factors to argue including weight classes, time active, statistical data. blah, blah.

Joe Louis was pretty badass though.

Rocky Marciano.

Joe Louis not even on the list...And neither is Jack Dempsey or Jack Johnson..If I had to say on this list it would be Ali And Sugar Ray Robinson...

Rocky Marciano.

Rocky Marciano never loss. And beat Joe.

#11 Posted by Ostyo (7417 posts) - - Show Bio

@doomguy: He beat Louis who was far pass his prime, and Rocky didn't even want to take the fight in the first place.

For the casual, it will be Ali. For those who actually keep up with boxing, Sugar Ray Robinson will be the majority.

I agree with Louis definitely being on the list. I don't think I can agree with the Jacks though since they both drew the color line despite being great boxers (Johnson due to no money being made off of fighting other black fighters) i.e. Sam Langford (i.e. arguably the greatest boxer that never had a belt around his waist).

#17 Posted by KingAres109 (1252 posts) - - Show Bio

@mcderpyson: Which Jack??I know Johnson fought white fighters..But I'm not too sure if Dempsey fought black fighters..

Both Jacks. When Johnson became heavyweight champ, he drew the color line which was ironic because he literally followed the champ at the time across the world mocking him until he got the fight. Sam Langford then did the same thing Johnson did (followed him around the world). It was said that Johnson pulled Langford aside and told him there is no money in two black fighters fighting each other. As harsh as that was, he was basically right... So Johnson skipped a lot of great up and coming black heavyweights in his prime. He then loss the title to Willard (which he might have thrown the fight to escape his infamous legal problems) which was then won by Dempsey (who beat the mother f<>k out of Willard). Dempsey then drew the color line (Johnson and Langford wanted to fight him too). I'm not sure if Dempsey could really be blamed for it however. It really was the public who was completely opposed to having black champions (there were no black champions in any weight division after Johnson for 15 years and 22 years for heavyweight). As you probably know, it was the reign of Jack Johnson in which the phase "Great White Hope" was coined.

@mcderpyson: Thanx bro..I agree with everything you said.And I do agree that two black fighters won't draw that much.Especially back then and even now.The sh*t that J.Johnson went through back then was crazy.I'm surprised he didn't beat anyone to death.

And on another note,hold old are you!??Younger guys don't know too Much about boxing.You really knowledgeable. And do you have an idea why Dempsey didn't want to fight any black fighters!??

I think a lot of people don't know Robinson... So sad... Him and Armstrong would be my tops 1 and 2.

No problem and I agree Johnson must have had Zen like patience. I'm 21 years old. I really don't think Dempsey was a racist at all. He actually had black sparring partners some of which were the best black heavyweights at the time (such as Bill Tate) and even showed respect to a number of black fighters, specifically Langford. He said about Langford, "The hell I feared no man. There was one man I wouldn’t fight because I knew he would flatten me. I was afraid of Sam Langford." And this is the same Dempsey who was considered a brawler's brawler who would fight Satan just for the hell of it. I think he was just in the wrong time period. He most likely did not want another Jack Johnson vs Jim Jeffries which was VERY understandable if that were the case (produced arguably the most notorious race riots in American history).

So glad some of you know Sam Langford. A truly underrated boxer. The best boxer to never hold the world title.

Love that documentary and yeah those two had very sad declines. With how great Armstrong was (A top 10 period for sure), there was NO reason whatsoever he should have died alone and blind in a run down apartment in New York...

Ali.He knocked out Superman lol

Rocky

#27 Posted by sabracadabra (537 posts) - - Show Bio

Marciano .Robinson is close second though.

I voted just to see the results.

Not surprising.

#29 Posted by King Saturn (224000 posts) - - Show Bio

I would say Sugar Ray Robinson... Muhammad Ali is a close second though...

Rocky was the only heavyweight to have never lost or tied in his whole career

#35 Posted by TDK_1997 (14656 posts) - - Show Bio

For me there are only two great boxers: Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson.

The assinine arrogant a-hole Floyd Mayweather is up there I think. Probably not above Sugar Ray Leonard but I'm guessing somewhere along the top tens.

@ssejllenrad: Oh. Hmm. I was kinda hoping it'd be someone else, though. Ali was great, but I'm getting tired of hearing about him. Huh.

Well he's the most famous IMO so I think people just say he's the best. I personally think he's top 5 but not the one greatest. That, for me, goes to Sugar Ray Robinson.

Sugar Ray Robinson. Watch his fights, the footwork and technical skills are breath taking.
