Rocky Marciano is an American heavyweight champion boxer who Jonathan Barnavelt says his nephew, Lewis, looks like he went a few round with after sleepless nights from worrying about the Keller family in the Hawaii House (The House where Nobody Lived; 116).


Background

Rocky Marciano (1923-1969) was an American professional boxer and the World Heavyweight Champion from September 23, 1952, to April 27, 1956[1].  He was the only champion to hold the heavyweight title and go untied and undefeated throughout his entire career.  Marciano was also the inspiration for the name, iconography, and fighting style of the title character Rocky Balboa from Sylvester Stallone's Rocky movie series.
