May 16, 1955: Marciano Vs. Cockell

     On May 16, 1955, Rocky Marciano successfully defended his title for a fifth consecutive time, by scoring a ninth round TKO over Britain's Don Cockell, at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco, California. Marciano would successfully defend the title one more time before deciding to retire in 1956. The legendary boxer never lost a professional fight, and is the only boxer to hold the heavyweight title without tying or losing a fight in his career.
