I wasn't alive back then, however 17 was the number quoted by KO Magazine. If they're wrong, they're wrong. LOL Hell, The Rock retired undefeated. If he got his nose broken 17 times, that makes him the toughest guy to ever fight.

by the way in a major poll Marciano indeed was voted the toughest fighter that ever lived by todays fans.

I'm confused at your comment about Roldan. Maybe I have to look at the fight again. / I lived my whole boxing life thinking that the Rock's nose was broken 17 times. I honestly don't see the problem, however if you're right, you're right. Look it up on the net. In the fight you're referring to with Ezzard Charles, his nose was split up the middle and it had the appearance of a pig's snout. It was scary, nevetheless Marciano won. He was superhuman where his pain threshold was concerned. / Dmar, you're very passionate about Marciano. That's your guy. I understand. My guys are Ali and Leonard. However the more time goes by, the more I tire of them. LOL They were both a bit arrogant in their own way. However, I still like them. Nobody's perfect and at least Ali was funny. / I would really like to know about your experience as a Rocky fan. Did you ever meet him? Did you ever know anyone who did?

Are you fucking serious????? B Hop, the greatest MW champ ever??? They must have 15 year olds running that magazine now. LOL / Ok Dmar, I'll make a deal with you. Never again will Marciano appear in my list of trivia questions. I would ask who was the only HW Champ who retired undefeated, but I think that's common knowledge by now.

frank I knew several who have met rocky including yours truly.i had a few one on one talks with him about boxing and one was a good hour long.going by memory since I saw that fight only once live on tv roldan indeed was officaly credited with a knockdown of marvin although I felt the knockdown was suspect.
frank believing ko magazine and the 17 times rock broke his nose is not your fault.its the mags fault for printing total fiction and I don't need to look it up on the internet.lol after all the internet is loaded only with truth.
my problem is with so called experts that don't know what there talking about.common sence proves them full of shit.going from memory 13 out of rockys first 15 fights ended with a one or 2 round ko.several under 2 minutes and several by a one punch ko.its highly unlikely he got a broken nose in thoses fights.i gave you 14 fights his bigger ones and only Charles split his nose.that leaves 20 fights left so that means 16 out of thoses 20 fights he got a broken nose yet fought a month or so later each and every time.
rocky used to stop in my home town Utica ny when he was on his way to Syracuse either to see a fight or to visit Carmen basilio.each time he would visit the great bantamweight of the 20s bushy graham and his brother Frankie.rocky also did several promotions for the local business there including the state street mill and venturas restraunt a legendary Italian restraunt and the colorfull rufie ventura who was friends with the rock as well as joe dimaggio.
everyone said the same thing.what a gentleman and a humble guy who never forgot his roots..thats the reasons why im a huge fan of his.being a all time great yes is a good reason but its the humility he had and gentleness.his knowledge of boxing history and also fighters of the day was accurate and remarkable.he never bad mouthed a opponent at all and never had a unkind word to say about them.he said on more then one time I prefer to do my fighting in the ring not in the newspapers.
he had the ultimate respect for fighters including Louis Walcott Charles beau jack georgie abrahms willie pep Dempsey and a few others that came up in our talks.thoses are several reasons why several of us from my generation are were and still are big fans of his.

Marvin was never knocked down in his professional or amateur career. Juan Roldan was credited with a knockdown of Hagler in thier fight after he pulled Marvin down by the back of his neck. My good friend Arthur Mercante was the referee. After watching the replay he simply said "I missed the call, what can I say? It looked to me like the punch landed in real time". He came to the locker-room after the fight and apologized to Marvin. Marvin barely acknowledged him. He was PISSED off about it for a couple days. One of the things Marvin was privately proud of though he never actually said it, was that nobody ever got him off his feet EVER.

Here is a little Marciano Trivia for you. Despite being labled as a "bleeder" Marciano was cut in his fights the same number of times that Evander Holyfield was. He was also cut less often than Mike Tyson

Boxing was a widely romanticized and exxagerated sport in the early days. Right around the late 60s-70s is when fact over-took fiction in boxing writing.

BL welcome back and thanks for verifying my memory.the knockdown of haggler I felt at that time indeed was suspect and what mercante said proves it.although lol its considered a official knockdown hagler indeed should be proud he was never off his feet in reality.

Welcome back BL.

I go with reality.

For example, Muhammad Ali was knocked down 3 times. The three fighters who accomplished this were Sonny Banks, Henry Cooper and Joe Frazier. Of course the record books say 4, and credit Chuck Wepner with a knockdown. Wepner stepped on his foot and Tony Perez made a mistake in ruling that a knockdown. Though the record books list Tony's admitted mistake as a knockdown, I do not.

Marvin Hagler was never knocked off his feet. Arthur M's mistake doesn't change that fact.

Some may disagree with my approach, but I see what I see, I hear what I hear and then I make up my mind.

(It should be noted that I only challenge the record books in EXTREME cases.)

Don't mean to butt in here. Kimball speaks of this in "Four Kings" on page 23. Evidently, Dornell Wigfall was a bad dude in Brockton and beat Hagler's ass twice. The second time was at a party in front of people prompting Hagler to join a gym the next day. The rest is history.

Hardcore, thanks a mil for the article. If it wasnt' for that, my recollection of the events as told to me would've been repudiated and dismissed. I heard about those events from a damn good source. Thanks again.

No problem, Four Kings has an excellent index section. Google is incredible that one can post the exact page I found in the index.
