On September 23, 1952, Rocky Marciano made history by knocking out Joe Walcott and claiming the world heavyweight championship. He went on to become the only heavyweight to retire undefeated, at 49-0. Now, sixty years to the day later, he'll make history again, as a record-size statue will be raised in his honor on September 23, 2012 in Brockton, Massachusetts.
