When Lee Savold met the ï¿½Brockton Basherï¿½ on February 13 1952, Rocky Marciano ended his career in a similarly brutal fashion to that done to Joe Louis. The fight was a bloody, one-sided affair from start to finish with Savold putting up little more resistance than a heavy bag. Marciano opened up cuts on his man over both his eyes and when Lee returned to his corner at the end of the sixth round, his trainer Bill Daly asked the referee to stop the match and save his man any more punishment. Offered here is an original wire photo depicting Marciano down from a slip. This is an original United Press wire photo with their stamp and caption on back. Bold, clear image. Clean front and back.
