NEW YORK - (NEA) — Rocky Marciano doesn't want to go on record as calling Nino Benvenuti another Sugar Ray Robinson yet. "But," says the former heavyweight great, "he reminds me more of Sugar Ray than of any other middleweight I've seen." That's high praise no matter how you slice it, but Rocky who has become something of a fistic philosopher since retiring from the ring, doesn't stop there. "Benvenuti," says Marciano, "is probably the finest European fighter ever to come over here. Cerdan was a great one, but Nino could be even better. "The first thing that impresses you is that he's a 'heads up' fighter, very alert. He 'takes advantage of a lot of 1 i 111 e things that most European fighters miss. Looking at him work you can't say 'he fights like a European.'

He can punch with either hand, he's fast on his feet, he can take a punch and he can box. But most of all, he'a always thinking." Benvenuti, who has earned the handle of "the intellectual" because he has been known to read a book on occasion, has his biggest asset, according to Marciano, sitting squarely between his muscular shoulders.
