During the late 50's and early 60's I was a staff instructor at the Davisville Naval Construction Training Unit.. Our Leading Chief was as Boatswain Mate from Brockton, Mass and he used to speak of an up and coming heavyweight boxer..His nickname was the
Brockton Block Buster. Much later this much admired man would become the world's heavyweight boxing champion.

Since he was white and boxing has been taken over by blacks, he will never be given his due in this PC socially engineered society of the last 60 years or so. Since the Liberal/Progressives control our culture, society, media and sports, Marciano and his record will be buried forever in sports history. He is the only undefeated (49 -0) Heavyweight Champion in the history of boxing. He was also drafted and served in the army.


Just so you know…A lot of people have this title confused.
The Greatest Boxer of All Time:
Didn't die recently...he died 47 years ago.
He didn't have 5 losses, he had 0. . .. None! !
He didn't have 37 Knock Outs he had 43 (88%).
He didn't dodge the draft.
He wasn't a race baiter and sure as hell didn't convert to Islam.
He was a local kid named Rocky Marciano, aka The Brockton Blockbuster.
Don't let the mainstream media idolize false prophets.
When he was asked on TV if he could've knocked out Ali in his prime his response was oh so classical!!
"I'd be conceited if I said I could've, but I'd be a liar if I said I couldn't".

Real name: Rocco Francis Marchegiano

August 31, 1969 Rocky Marciano died when the small plane he was traveling in crashed in Iowa, a day before this 46th birthday 41 years ago.

On June 5, 1952 Jersey Joe Walcott defended his heavyweight title for the last time. Thirty-eight year old Walcott beat Ezzard Charles in a fifteen round unanimous decision.

Three months later Rocky Marciano challenged Jersey Joe for the heavyweight title. On September 23, 1952 in Philadelphia’s Municipal Stadium a crowd of 40,379 fans witnessed Rocky Marciano stop Walcott in the thirteenth round to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. The paid attendance that day was $504,645.
