SEE PHOTO----- Three (3) COMPLETE, ORIGINAL NEWSPAPERs, the Auburn Citizen-Advertiser (NY) dated May 14, 15, and 16, 1953.

These have three inside page reports (and 2 photos) of the boxing match between ROCKY MARCIANO and JERSEY JOE WOLCOTT. Marciano defeated WOLCOTT in the first round with a knockout. 

Rocky Marciano (September 1, 1923 – August 31, 1969), born Rocco Francis Marchegiano, was an Italian-American boxer and the heavyweight champion of the world from September 23, 1952, to April 27, 1956. Marciano is the only person to hold the heavyweight title and go undefeated throughout his career.

After four more wins, including victories over Lee Savold and Harry Matthews, Marciano faced the world heavyweight champion, 38-year-old Jersey Joe Walcott, in Philadelphia on September 23, 1952. Walcott dropped Marciano in the first round and steadily built a points lead; but in the thirteenth, Walcott used his trademark feint to set up his right hand, but Marciano's "Suzie Q" landed first and boxing history was forever changed. Marciano landed a glancing left hook, albeit completely unnecessary, as Walcott slumped to his knees with his arm draped over the ropes. He lay motionless long after he had been counted out, and Marciano became the new world heavyweight champion. His first defense came a year later on May 15, 1953 against Walcott, who this time was knocked out in the first round.
