Robinson won the title, lost it on a close decision, regained it in spectacular fashion, and defended it twice before retiring the championship. He then came back, regained the title, defended it once, lost it to a middleweight who would have pounded Zale into the ground, regained the title with a one punch knockout, lost the title on a very close decision to an all-time great welterweight, regained it, lost it on a close decision, some say should have won it a sixth time, and went on to have a decent post championship career. He was never knocked out.

Robinson is hands down the greater middleweight.
Could you be more precise on whom Ray had beaten, it is rather interesting.

Thank you

I tell you what, Robinson is lucky Graziano was finished by the time they fought, because otherwise, that wouldn't just be a flash knockdown Robinson was on the receiving end of; it'd be a knockout.
