"One of the most consequential blows in boxing history.

Rocky Marciano Defeats Jersey Joe Walcott
(Original Caption) 9/24/52-Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: INP photographer Herb Scharfman was as precisely "on the button" as was the challenger when Rocky Marciano drove his right mercilessly to the jaw of champion Joe Walcott to knock him from his throne in the 13th round of last night's title fight at Philadelphia's Municipal Stadium. A cloudy spray of water and perspiration makes a partial halo around the head of the champion who was "ex" eleven seconds later. Note the "mouse" under Marciano's left eye. 
Ph: Herb Scharfman
