No one — not even Marciano — knew at the time that his ninth-round knockout of reigning light heavyweight champion Archie Moore would be the last time he would pull on the gloves as an active participant. And no one could have ever guessed that his final record —with 43 knockouts — would become so iconic.
On April 27, — more than seven months after beating Moore — Marciano called a hastily arranged news conference at the Hotel Shelton in New York City and told the world he was ending his professional boxing career. With that act, Marciano joined a select group of athletes who retired on top — and stayed retired.
In the six decades since his departure, several legendary fighters had zoomed past his mythical mark but, because they continued their pursuits of excellence, their records inevitably were stained by losses or draws.
Julio Cesar Chavez ran his record to before Pernell Whitaker affixed a draw that should have been a win for the slick American southpaw. Willie Pep began his career with 62 straight victories and it took the likes of Sammy Angott, who, just three fights after beating Pep, would regain the lightweight title he voluntarily relinquished.
Others came closer to the finish line: Ricardo Lopez ended his career at but, in fight 48 against Rosendo Alvarez, a freakish technical draw ended his run at perfection.
Larry Holmes famously ran his record to and seemed likely to equal Marciano when he signed to fight reigning light heavyweight king Michael Spinks. The promotional centerpiece of Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Despite being just 32 years old at the time of his departure, the Rock never again tempted fate by launching a comeback that could have irreparably soiled the sheen his perfect record provided.
But as good as the in-ring combat was, the story lines surrounding their fight were even better. Even though he always walked out of the ring as the winner, he still was perceived as the ultimate overachiever, a man who made the most of every gift he was bestowed.
The reasons for this reputation were self-evident. Even after years of instruction from legendary trainer Charley Goldman, Marciano remained a hittable target with chronically breakable brows that, over time, spilled quarts of crimson on the canvas. And yet he won. As Walcott inched back toward the ropes, Marciano inched forward to maintain his ideal distance.
The one he levied over Walcott was more than sufficient. His second knockout win over Walcott in the rematch was wholly unsatisfying in comparison to the classic original and though Marciano stopped Roland LaStarza, he was out-boxed over long stretches.
The only way to achieve that status was to thoroughly defeat another truly great fighter. While Marciano was a straightforward, uncomplicated character, Moore loved to shroud himself in mystery. Sullivan noted that even the most mundane details of his life were points of dispute.
Moore said he was born in Collinsville, Ill. A check of the Census surprisingly revealed that he, not his mother, was correct on the matter of his age and place of origin. While Marciano was rugged and unpolished inside the ring, Moore fancied himself as an artistic craftsman who analyzed his opponents, plotted meticulous ring strategies and executed his blueprints with crisp, concise blows.
His cerebral ring style was an extension of his overall persona, which was professorial, philosophical and occasionally profound.
To this point in his ring life, Moore had fought in 37 U. Because he had no stable management for years, he simply fought anywhere that would have him and anyone willing to step in the ring with him.
That ultimately resulted in losses, several of which happened inside the distance. Those blemishes occurred just often enough to lock him out of the championship picture for more than a decade.Shop the new collection of dresses, tops, bottoms, shoes, accessories and more for women.

Instead it’s often the domain of seasoned travelers who have already seen everything else Italy has to offer and are looking for more. Marcion's canon consisted of the Euangelion, or the Gospel of the Lord, and the Apostolikon, ten epistles of Paul, not including the pastorals. There is debate over whether Marcion truncated Luke and Paul or whether later orthodox scribes may have expanded them in some cases.
