Rocky Won't Put That Crown on the Shelf.

New York -- Rocky Marciano, sporting a left eye shiner as a memento of his victorious ring encounter last night with Archie Moore, is shown with his manager Al Weill during a press conference today. Marciano said he has "no thought in my mind to retire right now," although his family and a few personal friends want him to. Weill said Rocky will not defend his title again before next June, and mentioned as possible opponents Hurricane Jackson, Bob Baker, Nino Valdes and Floyd Patterson. (1955)
