Oh Yeah, he sounds like a 'normal' Light-Heavyweight.

Fight Promoter - Chris Dundee would never make up anything to get a fight card done.

A 100% 'set-up' phony fight.
Did Robinson come out of the audience on short notice for those fights? No, ok so its safe to assume he either wasnt in the best shape or didnt have to make weight.

How is it a setup if the guy who was supposed to face Ali, a 6'6" 220 pound heavyweight with 14 fights fails to show and they have to get a last minute sub to keep the card alive? It happens all the time.

And there isnt a single fight you listed for Robinson that was below 160, you can call him what you want but the guy never made the middleweight limit.
