    Description

    Rocky Marciano 1950s Training Worn Boxing Gloves Gifted to Sylvester Stallone. The parallels are many, from the nickname to the national heritage to the legendary indestructibility. This black leather pair of gloves saw action on the hands of the only undefeated Heavyweight Champion in history before the Marciano family gifted them to the man who would adopt the "Rocky" moniker for his own world-beating use.

    The left and right gloves weigh six and eight ounces respectively, and exhibit solid, sweaty wear from the iron-jawed Marciano. Original lacing is present, and while the gloves lack any manufacturer's tagging, the style is entirely consistent with other known Marciano models. An extraordinary offering that links the two great "Rockys" of Heavyweight fame.
