Notes

The Associated Press reported: “Robinson, weighing 145, delivered a volley of lefts and rights to Jannazzo’s face during most of the first seven rounds. In the eighth, Sugar slammed Izzy all over the ring and finally floored him for a count of nine. Robinson resumed his deadly attack after Jannazzo arose, and Referee Jackie Davis halted it after two minutes and 13 seconds of the round.”
