Caption/Description

Sugar Ray Robinson (right) connects with a solid left hook flush on the chin of Gene Fullmer in the 5th round of their middleweight set title bout here, May 1st. The smashing blow seperated Fullmer from his senses as well as the crown. He toppled to the canvas and was counted out. Robinson's up win gave him the middleweight crown.
