This is from May 1954, Giardello was coming off back to back knockouts of Garth Panter and Walter Cartier, which caused something of a stir around the boxing world because they were the first kayos he'd scored since 1951.

''I never wanted to finish off those guys'' said Giardello of his dearth of knockouts. ''I felt sorry when I hurt someone. We were all in the same businees and I didn't want to see anybody get hurt'' But my managers tell me the only way you can mae any dough is to be a pucnher. I guess they're right. It's Joltin Joey from now on''

Giardello stuck to his plan for one more fight, stopping Willie Troy, but then it was back to winning the majority of his matches by decision.
