Mini Bio (1)

Joe Marciano was one of kick-boxing most promising fighters in the early and mid 1980s. With a lean build and blond hair, a former U.S. Army paratrooper, he trained in kick-boxing under the guidance of the legendary Burt Rodriguez. Marciano began his professional kick-boxing career in North Miami, Florida and soon compiled a 12-1 record and a top ten world rating in the super-lightweight division. Marciano was noted for his relentless punching style and iron chin. From 1983-1985 he made his move and met numerous world rated contenders with mixed results; he lost decisions to Howard Jackson (World Kickboxing Welterweight Champion), was stopped in 3 rounds by World Kickboxing Middleweight Champ Steve Sheppard, lost a decision to 12th rated Mark Gurley, and dropped a nod to U.S. Lightweight Champion Yoel Judah. In 1985 on the comeback trail Marciano defeated 3 straight opponents including a decision over David "Wild Man" Ruiz. In the March 1985 Star System Computered World Kickboxing Ratings compiled by Paul Maslak (future movie producer), Marciano now 18-10, with 8 knockouts was rated 20th in the world in the Super-Lightweight Division. He retired a short-time later. He also had an impressive amateur boxing career, winning his first 29 fights. His amateur record was 30-1.
