ROLAND LA STARZA
Small sepia photograph of a young Roland La Starza in a boxing pose.
Photograph signed: "With best Wishes/Roland La Starza". B/w, 5x8 overall, image 4½x6½ (one surface). Captioned at bottom margin. Roland La Starza (1927-2009) fought Rocky Marciano for the heavyweight boxing title on September 24, 1953.  For six rounds he held his own with the champ, but in the later rounds Marciano pummeled the tiring challenger until the referee stopped the fight in the eleventh.  It was the first defeat for La Starza after 57 wins, 24 by knockout.  La Starza never really came back from that title bout, losing 5 of his remaining seven fights.  La Starza got some film and TV acting roles in the 1960s and early seventies, even winning a regular role in the series The Gallant Men (1962-1963). Horizontal creases not near signature. Lightly chipped at left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
