Graziano and Zale faced each other in three brutal battles with this second fight as violent a fight as here has ever been. Graziano, who claimed the middleweight championship, fought through terrible cuts and facial swelling, and both men took immense punishment. Graziano dropped Zale in the sixth round and then finished him with a barrage of about 30 unanswered blows.
