Default Re: Rocky Marciano vs Don ****ell 'Batting Practice'

April 24, 1956 (Tuesday Night)

Earl's Court, London, United Kingdom

The career of 27 year-old 'tubby' British-Empire Heavyweight - Don ****ell
should come to an end.

The 211 lb. Heavyweight was 'stopped (L KO 2) by Kitione Lave,
a 22 year-old - 200 lb. 'Tongan Torpedo'.

****ell was 'dropped' in the 1st-round by the little known Lave, and
floored again in Round 2.

The hard-punching Tongan, improved his record to 29-6-2 (25 KO's),
as he completely over-whelmed the courageous ****ell, who has now been
stopped in '3-straight' bouts.

Don ****ell now falls to 66-14-1, and will undoubtedly retire.

Don ****ell, 'I think Kitione has the right style to defeat Rocky Marciano.
He punches fast and hard, and is a more complete fighter than the Champion.
Rocky is strong, but he is getting older and slower. These young guys are too big,
and punch too fast.'

'The Tongan Torpedo'
