Help me identify this boxer.

unknownMy father-in-law came across an old photo of a boxer while at a flea market. He bought it and gave it to me knowing I am a fan of the sport. Problem is, he, the seller, nor I know who this is. Can you help?  I’ll be embarrassed if this is someone obvious.

My father-in-law thought it was Rocky Marciano.  I assured him that the man in this photo was definitely NOT “The Brockton Blockbuster”.   What I do know about this photo is that it is old, was originally black & white and then colored.  The photo was purchased in Dutchess County, New York which is next to Orange County.  I mention that because I have a feeling it’s a local boxer and odds are, from Orange County.  That is ALL the information I have on this photo.  I know viewers of BOXING 4 FREE are savvy and know their stuff, so I’m hoping one of you can help me out.
