cky Marciano was born Rocco Francis Marchegianon on September 1, 1923, in Brockton, Massachusetts where he was raised by his parents who immigrated from Italy. He had five siblings, two brothers, Peter and Louis and three sisters, Alice, Concetta and Elizabeth. At eighteen months, Rocky contracted a bout of pneumonia which almost killed him but with an innate will to fight, he pulled through and went on to attend school. He played baseball, worked out on homemade weight lifting equipment, used a heavily stuffed mailbag hanging from a tree in his back yard as a heavy bag that he consistently punched and executed countless chin-ups until fatigue almost had him passing out.
