CHAMPION SCORES WITH A RlGHT—Heavyweight Champion Rocky Marciano, blood streaming from cuts over and under his
left eye, jarred Ezzard Charles with this solid right to the jaw in the 13th round of their bruising title fight last night at Yankee
Stadium, Rocky continued hammering away at the challenger at the same pace in the last two rounds to win a unanimous deci

by Charles’ ability to take a
punch and by his power. I just
couldn’t get going early. I guess
I was dull. But at the finish I
was plenty fresh, not the least
bit tired.”
It was pointed out to Rocky
that he never could pin Charles
to the ropes, one of his pet
maneuvers to set up an opponent
for a kayo.
“Yes, I tried but couldn’t hem
him in,” Rocky said. “He was
smart and strong.”
Would he knock him out the
next time?
“Well, I’d say I’d fight him
different,” Marciano replied.
“Charles will never be the
same again,” said Rocky’s little
trainer, Charley Goldman. “The
next time it will be like Rocky
against (Joe) Louis, (Lee) Sa

Challenger Wins Respect.
No matter what may happen
the next time, there’s no doubt
that Charles won more respect
in this loss than in any of his
most glittering victories. Mar
ciano hit him after the bell
several times and a few of the
champion’s blows strayed below
the waist, but the challenger
didn’t squawk.
Through the first four rounds
he bewildered the champion with
left jabs, hooks and rights and
successfully tied up the flat
footed, stalking Marciano.
“He was jabbing good and get
ting his right to my head and
body,” the frank titleholder said.
Charles looked like the greatest
18-to-5 underdog bet you ever
saw until then.
Rocky unlimbered his left
hooks to take the fifth. In the
sixth the often wild swinging
Marciano rocked Charles with a
terrific right to the jaw and
solid hook to the stomach.
Ball Saved Him, Rocky Says.
“I dazed him but the bell saved
him,” the Rock said.
The 10th was another big
round for the champion and he
almost felled Charles with his
looping “Suzy Q” right. In the
11th he came close to dropping
his taller rival with a right and
a blazing hook to the body.
Charles fired back often
enough but his punches had lost
their steam. In the final round
as Rocky went out to clinch the
verdict, Charles barely staved
off a knockout. The challenger
staggered all over the ring with
his hands waist high while Rocky
shellacked him.
“I don’t know what held him
up,” the admiring champion
said. “He sure has what it

First Drive-In Theater Fight TV
Is Artistic, Financial Success
By George Huber
Sidney Lußt, the movie theater

television of the Marciano-
Charles fight at his Hillside
Drive-In Theater last night, is
as happy as a kid with a new
It was the first attempt at
outdoor theater television in this
section of the country and the
show went off without a hitch.
The picture came in big and
clear, and about 4,000 persons
showed up in their automobiles
to make the event a financial
as well as artistic success.
At a rather stiff entrance fee
of $3.50 apiece, of which $1.50
went to the fighters, this made
a nice addition to the total gate
receipts for the fight. In addi
ion to the customers who paid
their way in, there must have
been close to 2,000 other persons
watching the show for free from
outside the fence along a high
spot on the Marlboro pike.
Lust himself was so pleased
with the way things went he
plans to enlarge his theater tele
vision operations, putting the
gadget next at his Beltsville
Drive-In. “I’ll show anything
that comes along now,” he
said, “fights of course, but also

Washington has not drawn a
capacity crowd, but all other

regular indoor theaters with
their more limited capacities.

only one attempt at a car to
“gate-crash” the event. This one
got away with it, incidentally,
driving through the portal with
out paying and getting quickly

There was an air of informal

the spectators wandering around,
visiting friends in other autos
and generally having a picnic.
At those times during the fight
when the action was brisk the

by blowing their horns. Some of
