Re: Rocky Marciano vs Don ****ell 'Batting Practice'
September 13, 1955
Just 4-months after his courageous effort against Champion - Rocky Marciano (L TKO 9).
Don ****ell, a super pudgy (218 lbs.) is battered and floored in Round 3,
and badly cut by the tall and raw Cuban Heavyweight - Nino Valdes.
The bout is stopped at the end of Round 3.
Don ****ell, 'Nino will destroy Marciano when they fight. He's bigger, faster, stronger and
punches harder. Rocky is really nothing, other than a clubbing club-fighter. Short arms,
wild swings and no defense.'
