    Default floyd should retire b4 Marciano's ghost gets him

    Larry Holmes was also 48-0 when the Brocktonblockbuster said "Here comes 48-1, bitch!"

    OK I'll kick the karma back in here:

    Rocky couldn't carry Floyd's jockstrap.

    It happened to Paul Spadafora recently too, he was 48-0 and then took his first loss.

    Maybe that's why Floyd chose an easier fight for his 49th.

    Rocky beat Muhammad Ali even after he "died", as his 13th Round knockout of Ali was announced in January 1970.

    Then Rocky beat Larry Holmes via the Spinks Jinx in 1985/6.

    Then as @Beanflicker said Spafafora got hit at 48-0 with a doooozy of a Soooozy Q

    Floyd is fucked up the ass as Rocky Marciano " couldn't carry Mayweather's jockstrap"

    Marciano fought like 4 guys(at the most) who were legitimate challengers although every single one was at least half shot, and not one great current HW. Chavez Sr could have retired at almost 100-0 after having been a dominant champion for a good while, but nobody would really consider that to be a championship record by any means. Why is Marciano treated so differently, just because he retired? Floyd has already destroyed his record, as have many many others.

    Floyd will pick an even easier opponent for #50. No need to worry about Floyd, Cesar Cuenca will probably fight to 55-0 and then retire.
    If I was Cesar I'd start watching my back, Floyd might pay to have both his arms and legs broken! LOL

    that's a great idea, cuenca v mayweather if they both make it to 49-0, they're pretty close in weight they can have some weird catchweight for a newly created title.. I hope it happens :S

    Cesar Cuenca's 45th fight was against a guy with a 16-9-2 record and his 40th fight's opponent was 11-10-4!!!

    That's not a record breaking record.

    I know that, I am joking, cuenca has only 2 kos and I don't think he has fought outside of argentina... It would just be a funny novelty is all

    I think Lucas Mattyhse would have a slight edge in power if he and Cuenca battled to see who the best 140 pounder from Argentina is.

    LOL

    This is the single biggest reason why I hate Larry Holmes.
    Well.... that and the fact he was always bitching about people not liking him 'cause he was black.

    That jab would have had his face tore up beyond recognition.

    Marciano is in the same league as david haye and chisora.

    Haye would destroy him.
