Default Round 11 Robinson-LaMotta VI

I am trying to understand the dynamic of this round. LaMotta got Robinson in the corner and landed several, what appear to be, clean shots. Robinson was rolling with them, but his hands were by his side. It almost looks like he wanted LaMotta to unload on him. After that volley, LaMotta was shot. He hardly threw any more punches with significance, and Robinson started teeing off on his head. It's an incredible round of boxing.

Do you think LaMotta actually had Robinson in trouble? Or was Robinson using his extraordinary chin to let a tired LaMotta spend himself? He could have held LaMotta and stopped the action. Did he allow LaMotta to hit him all those times?
