Rhode Island Auditorium, Providence, Rhode Island, USALTKO510
time: 1:46 | referee: Dolly Searle
Pretzie gave Marciano more trouble than all of his previous opponents, but was thoroughly beaten. Johnny defended himself well but lacked the stamina and punch needed to cope with Marciano. Rocky showed no boxing skill at all; just strength and a punch. Pretzie was floored once in round four and three times in round five before the referee topped the fight. 3595 fans attended; gross gate $6,821.
