… that today is Rocky Marciano Day? On this day in 1952, Rocky Marciano knocked out world heavyweight champion Jersey Joe Walcott in the 13th round and went on to be the only heavyweight champion to retire without a defeat or draw as a professional boxer. Trivia fans: Marciano’s punch was tested and, according to Boxing Illustrated, his “knockout blow packs more explosive energy than an armor-piercing bullet and represents as much energy as would be required to spot lift 1000 pounds one foot off the ground.”
