Brutal fight.

Though this encounter ended bloody it was not nearly as fast paced or well fought as their first meeting, at least from Charles end. Charles came out for the first session and took the frame, from there it was all Marciano. The champion lands with powerful blows in the 8th and after 1 knockdown that saw Charles rise at 4 Rocky ended it quickly seconds later to retain The Heavyweight Championship of the World.
