The world wide attention commanded by this return 15-ronml title bout reflects not only the promise of another blood-and-thunder brawl between the sluggers, but also the current supremacy of the latent-packed, IGO-ponnd division over the fight game's other seven weight brackets, Including the heavyweight class. Although thc middleweight department- has boasted such grent warriors as Kid McCoy, Stanley Ketchnl, Harry Greb, ami Mickey Walker, never has it enjoyed such top-flight, division-wide competition as that which will be provided in j tonight's class of the two maulers | who met in the "fight of the year" last September 27 in their fust hrllling encounter at New York's Yankee Stadium.

Brown-haired Zale, wilb the flrt- batterect face, was favored at G : 5 Lo 5 to achieve a repeat triumph over Grnziano. whom he knocked out at 1:43 of tlie -sixlh round nt Yankee Stndhmi fast September. Zale was favored largely because he displayed superior and perhaps superior gi\mene3s in their first bout. Returning to competition for his first title defense after serving three and a half years in the Navy, Zale rose from tlie canvas in thc second round, and then absorbed a beating until tne sixth round when he >uc!;len!y .knocked out Rocky with a right hook to the solar plexus and a left hook to the chin. n their pre- an underdog ic rccog- i:,/.vn ,i.-> world chnm[>ion everywhere except In his own New York Klutr.
