Thomas Rocco Barbella (1919 – 1990), better known as Rocky Graziano, was an American boxer. Graziano was considered one of the greatest knockout artists in boxing history, often displaying the capacity to take his opponent out with a single punch. He was ranked 23rd on The Ring magazine list of the greatest punchers of all time. Go HERE to check out a killer post regarding never before seen (posted Nov.1 2012) contact sheets from Stanley Kubrick’s first movie and his photos of Heavy Weight champion, Rocky Graziano: "From Photography to Film, Stanley Kubrick enters the ring."
