"I still think I won the first fight and so do a lot of other people," the 86-year-old Lowry told writer Robert Mladinich for a 2006 article. "I feel as if I was cheated out of my little piece of history."

Lowry conceded that Marciano beat him fairly in their rematch. "I realize I still have a piece of history," he said. "Here it is, all these years later and reporters still come around and ask about the Marciano fights."

The Providence Journal felt Marciano won a more convincing decision over Lowry in this bout, than their previous meeting. Marciano had Lowry near a knockout at the end, as he rocked him with a right in the corner. Lowry finished with lumps under both eyes.
