As far as I hear Marciano said the Archie Moore fight ruined his back for good. Moore's style to blame for that, all the mongoosing he was doing. Although Rocky said he felt he had 2 or 3 more good fights left in him, it sure woulda been interesting watching him fight a really young and up and coming Floyd Patterson. Do you think Floyd was too quick and leaping for the slower Marciano? Or would it have been like LIston destroying Patterson? Was Rocky over the hill at that point? And if he's beaten Patterson, who woulda been next? INgemaar Johannsen? That woulda been an interesting fight as well. But thats about as far as I can see Marciano going, like he said, 2 or 3 more good fights. He coulda fought well intto 1957, even to the start of 1958 but I think that's far enough. What do you think? Was Sonny LIston around to get a title shot in 1957-8??
