My goodness.

A very gutty performance by the challenger who took a brutal pasting throughout the contest and showed a remarkable chin under the onslaught of Marciano's never ending barrage of power punches. Cockell is knocked almost through the ropes at the end of a pulvarizing 8th frame, and is down early in the 9th with Marciano getting in a extra smashing shot to his downed challenger. Cockell is dropped 2 more times in the 9th session and is on rubbery legs staggering around the ring taking shot after tremendous shot until the referee realizing Cockell is going to have to be saved from himself steps in to put a hault to the action just past the midway point of the frame. And Rocky Marciano once again successfully defends his Heavyweight Championship of the World.
