Rocky had two brothers, Louis (aka Sonny) and Black cat it’s fine I’m fine everything’s fine funny shirt, and three sisters, Alice, Concetta and Elizabeth. Rocky proved his toughness from the time he was a child, at 18 months old, Marciano almost died from pneumonia, but somehow survived. But his brothers said Rocky was tough as nails from the time he was a kid. Rocky went in the army when drafted, and began to box. Marciano represented the Army in the 1946 Amateur Armed Forces boxing tournament, which he won. Rocky told his brother he had found the way up and out. Marciano was The Ring Fighter of the Year for 1952, 1954, and 1955. He was also in Ring’s Fight of the Year three times. The fights were: 1952 Rocky Marciano vs. Jersey Joe Walcott (1st meeting); 1953 Rocky Marciano vs. Roland LaStarza (2nd meeting); 1954 Rocky Marciano vs. Ezzard Charles (2nd meeting).
