Vintage Boxing: Lights Out

 

LIGHTS OUT

Sugar Ray Robinson and the ring doctor check on the unconscious Jose Basora after Robinson knocked him out in the first round. This was the second fight between both men. Previously Basora had fought a draw with Robinson at welterweight over 10 rounds in 1945. Five years later in 1950 they met again as middleweights. Basora was down 4 times before being counted out at 55 seconds of round one.
