1953 Fight of the Year - Ring Magazine

Rocky Marciano the newly crowned World Heavyweight Champion was making the 3rd defence of his belt in a rematch with Roland LaStarza. 3 years prior these 2 met in which Marciano won a split points decision over 10 rounds with many observers feeling as though LaStarza had won. After working his way back into title contention LaStarza was looking to settle the score once and for all. The fight does not disappoint, a classic 50's battle. Enjoy!
