         The was a rematch.  The fighters first met in September 1952 in
Philadelphia.  Rocky won one hell of a fight, by KO, in round 13.  He won the
heavyweight championship that night.

          Jersy Joe looked real good, though he was near the end of his career.
 Still moved very well and threw very hard punches.  He knocked Rocky down in
the first round, and it looked like it might be over quick.  But the
Blockbuster came back hard, and eventually wore Jersy Joe down.
          The KO is excellent.  This fight was a war.

          I never saw the rematch, so maybe someone else can fill us in.  Joe
was probably still beaten down from the first fight, physically and mentally.
I don't think he ever fought for the championship again.

         Save TNF!

    Not much to say about the second Marciano-Walcott fight actually.
    It was at the now-gone Chicago Stadium.
    Walcott went down from a left hook of all things. He jumped up immediately
after the count and claimed he was jobbed.
     A.J. Liebling's "Sweet Science" has an excellent account of it. That book
should be at your local library.

There was some controversy in the fight.Walcotts manager and other
people claimed he was counted out at 9.I dont know how much walcott got
paid butthat was his last fight.He then became a parole officer,refereed
the second ali-liston fight in 1965 and later became Newjersey state
athletic commissioner.He died february 26,1994 at 80 years old.His
career record was 58 wins,18 losses and 1 draw.Any more imformation i
have I"ll let you know.

I've seen Walcott v. Marciano II on tape and the look on Walcott's
face says it all, the ref appeared to issue a fast count at the end
just as Walcott is rising.  My copy stops as Walcott appears to
be talking (arguing?) with the ref over the stoppage.

                        So what did his face (expression)
                        provide as an index to what condition
                        was he was in?
