Cu Joe Walcott speaks:- "I couldn't believe what I was hearing, I heard him say 7 and them he said the fight was over. I just couldn't understand, I could have gotten up at the count of 3. I wasn't hurt at no time and it's the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen."
SCU Marciano & Al Weill speak:- M:- "I thought it was the right uppercut that really knocked him out, Al."
Al:- "Well, that's what it looked to me like. I thought the left hook was setting him up pretty good for that punch, & you finished it with a right hand uppercut, is that right?"
M:- "I think the left hook sheared and he dropped right into my right hand."
