1952-05-12 : Rocky Marciano 186¼ lbs beat Bernie Reynolds 185¼ lbs by KO at 2:21 in round 3 of 10

  • Location: Rhode Island Auditorium, Providence, Rhode Island, USA
  • Referee: Dolly Searle
  • Reynolds gave a very good account of himself. He clearly outfought Marciano in round one. The second round was a slugfest, and Marciano's powerful punches were slowing Bernie in the latter stages. Marciano came out to end it in round three, but Reynolds was still punching strongly. A terrific right to the jaw, which actually lifted Reynolds off of his feet, ended it. The arena was a bedlam of excitement as the referee finished his count.
  • Attendance was 4,528 and the gross gate was $12,586.
