Sugar Ray Robinson

Sugar Ray Robinson
Walker Smith Jr., better known as Sugar Ray Robinson, is generally recognized as the greatest boxer of all time.

Robinson amassed a record of 173-19-6, 108 KOs and from 1943 to 1951, Robinson went on a 91-fight unbeaten streak. 65 years ago, Jake LaMotta was Sugar Ray Robinson’s bloody Valentine in a savage Middleweight title fight.

The most painful of their six fights took place at Chicago Stadium and is one of the most famous fights in boxing history with Robinson stopping LaMotta in a punishing 13th round to win the undisputed Middleweight title.

In 2006, Robinson was featured on a commemorative stamp by the United States Postal Service.
