I prefer Fullmer's list. And if Olson was knocked out by Robinson in four (the same Robinson Fullmer would then beat), then I can't see him drawing with Giardello or Tiger either.
Olson also went the distance with Robinson to lose a dec over 15 when Robinson was 31 and nearer his prime,Fullmer drew with Robinson when Ray was 39 and beat him when he was 40. Mcmurtry beat Olson in57 when Bobo was fighting as a heavy weight ,[187],so that result isnt relevant concerning the 50s middle weights,the fact remains that nearly half of Fullmers best wins during the 50s were over welter weights,one of whom ,Gil Turner dropped him,he was also dropped by Eduardo Lausse,and Bobby Boyd in losing matches. Its true Olson was kod by Robinson ,but so was Fullmer ,by the famous ,"perfect punch".
