Oh yes he did.

Here's a newspaper article on the ****ell fight:

Briefly presented, as the fighters themselves remained in their respective camps to train for actual combat, the issues involved:
The use of eight-ounce gloves, as California law requires for all divisions over 147 pounds, instead of the six-ounce gloves common in other states for title matches. Marciano's manager, Al Weill, roared disapproval of the eight-ouncers.
The runt was beating up other runts wearing 6 oz gloves.
