Rocky Marciano retires from boxing...

Item # 579059

April 27, 1956

LEOMINSTER DAILY ENTERPRISE, Leominster, Massachusetts, April 27, 1956

* Rocky Marciano retires from boxing (1st report)
* Heavyweight champion

This 12 page newspaper has a two column headlines on the front page: "ROCKET MARCIANO NEVER BEATEN IN 49 PRO FIGHTS, RETIRES AS CHAMPION", "Tells of Decision at News Conference Held in N.Y." with smaller subheads.

This tells of the retirement of rocky Marciano while still heavyweight champion and undefeated. Nice to have this on the front page as it was usually was an inside page report in most newspapers.

Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Minor spine wear, otherwise nice.1
