AJ Liebling's classic 1955 essay about canny "Old Mongoose" Archie Moore and brawler Rocky Marciano. This fight marked the second and final time that Marciano was ever knocked down in the ring. When fight fans tell you that "styles make fights", this essay will help you understand what they mean.
You are so right. Having broken fingers in Krav Maga and ruptured a disc in BJJ, I can attest, yes, styles make fights. :)
