Default Rocky Marciano Blind In Walcott Fight

I Really Thought this Was Common Boxing Knowledge, But the More i Speak to People the More it turns out Many have either forgotton or Never Knew Rocky Couldnt See in the Middle Rounds of His First Fight With Jersey Joe.

I Know Most Of You Know That in The Middle Rounds some kind of solvent seeped into Marciano's eyes, making him blind.

But it isn't Well known in comparison to Ali V Liston.

Thoughts?

Yes, it shows how tough Rocky was, he couldn't see but kept moving forward swinging, not many people would be willing to do that against a fighter of Walcott's calibre. Walcott could hit too, it's not like he was feather fisted.

In the plane crash that killed him I've heard he was decapitated, but that has nothing to do with his fight with Walcott.

I Agree

Walcott had great Power, His Shot Against Charles Was Very Impressive, He Landed the Same Shot on Rocky in Round 1 and Rocky Got back up ,

Walcott's Power is very underrated

Yes, I did read that in a bio of him but I don't really hear anyone mentioning it much either. The Liston fight to my knowledge, Liston had several fights where that suspiciously popped up but I don't think about Walcott. Maybe it's the general controversy of both Liston/Ali fights, compared to the Marciano/Walcott fight that has people talking about it more.

Yes it is. He wasn't as big a puncher as guys such as Shavers, Marciano, Foreman, etc. but it was not a good idea to let Jersey Joe hit you clean a few times. His knockout over Ezzard Charles was one of the most perfectly timed and executed hookercuts (mix between an uppercut and hook) I've ever seen.

Firstly... "....and his head.." That was just a joke. ****ING GET OVER IT.

Secondly... Who gives a **** if Rock had something in his eyes. He was in no position to get KO'd anyway... thats why its not a big deal in comparison to Clay/Liston.

Clay was in a position to be very badly hurt by Sonni.

Don Dunphy, "Marciano took such a beating in the 11th and 12th round. I didn't think he would come out for the 13th round."

Obviously Walcott was capable of hurting most anyone.

Just as well his eyes were only affected in the MIDDLE ROUNDS!!!!

This is just as stupid as the other dribble written here...


poor example.

I know he wasn't blind at that point. Not the point. I'm saying he was taking so much punishment toward that point, that it was perceived he was getting badly hurt. To say something idiotic like "Rocky had no chance of being seriously hurt while blind" but Liston could against Ali just shows ignorance. If he could be hurt at that stage, he could be seriously hurt while blindly moving forward.

So Marciano was not in danger of getting hurt as he blindly pressed forward against a puncher like Walcott?

Flash Knock downs, just like the left hook in the opening round, other than that I cant see Marciano being in severe trouble against DANGEROUS PUNISHING EFFECTS from Walcott aged 95 y/o.

You tried to create this thread in hope of giving Marciano some kind of false heroic award.... Fine, crap was in his eyes.. Boo Fkn Hoo.. If Marciano had the balls to face the likes of Liston whilst in a similar position, then I'd be the first to prasie him.

Marciano is a ****ing Midget. Most over rated pile of shit H/W ever.

.....and his head fell off.
