Marshall, a last minute substitute for Harold Johnson, lost all but the first round and it was even. Johnson hurt his shoulder while training for the bout. (UP) From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette- "Liston apparently planned to coast through the bout, and (Referee) McTiernan warned him twice to get in there and fight." Liston had Marshall on the verge of a knockout on several occasions, but the safety-minded Detroit fighter found a way to survive.

Marshall had originally been declared the winner on a 3rd round KO, but according to The Ring, April, 1954; "Matchmaker Al Haft got Marshall to go back in the ring after giving him some more money and he and Moore fought seven vicious rounds. Marshall for the second time won, once by a KO in the third and again by a decision in ten - a most unusual affair."
