I agree with this post.
As you can see at 1:50 in this clip, Sonny is a very, very bad actor.
He doesn't look out of it to me. He looks very aware of what he's doing. After rolling about for a bit maybe he had second thoughts as he gets up instantly without much bother, and then the fight is stopped after some of the worst refereeing in history from Jersey Joe Walcott who listened to Nat Fleisher (I think) who said "he's been down for 10 seconds" and JJW thought that meant the fight was off and the neutral corner rule just wasn't in existence.
