February 13, 1952
During his rubble littered path of mayhem and destruction towards Sport’s then richest prize, Rocky Marciano thundered his way to victory number thirty nine, defeating Lee Savold at the Convention Hall in Philadelphia, with an overwhelming irresistible TKO. Savold´s Manager stopped the bout between round 6 & 7. The Referee was Pete Tomasco.
Seven months later, Rocky would conquer the crown, with his signature devastating “Suzy Q” overhead right KO, which knocked “Jersey” Joe Walcott unconscious in the thirteenth round.
