The terrorizing Rocky Marciano

A long right to the chin from Marciano in round eight leaves Cockell draped through the ropes. The champion holds off on this occasion, waiting to see if his opponent will recover. At other times during the fight Marciano wasn’t quite so restrained; some observers went so far as to castigate him for flagrant breaches of the rules. He was certainly guilty of more than one low blow, and of hitting Cockell when he was going down. Marciano also butted, elbowed and thumbed his man, all with impunity. 16 May 1955
