Graziano
Basilio 2
Lamotta 6
Olson 3.............Just to name a few


I've also heard that he put up a good effort in his third fight with Fullmer despite losing.

Lamotta and Graz fights. These are my favorite Robinson fights.

Graziano is to me the best Robinson I have seen. Moving beautifully, but loading up when he was firing. After he was pulled down by Graziano he got up and imediately KO'ed Graziano.

Yes, he was good vs Graziano but Lamotta was his signature win (as far as existing film goes)... he did everything in that fight, the Rocky fight didnt last long enough.

How he gets that torque on all 3 or 4 consecutive hooks at times is amazing. He really is the greatest.

P, if you are amazed by the 31 year old Robinson of the Graziano knockout
in 1952, you would be astounded by the PRIME WELTERWEIGHT 24 year old
Robinson koing a tough Irishman Jimmy McDaniels @MSG,I saw in 1945.
After taking tough body blows in the first round Robinson,at the height of his
powers unleashed a blurr of punches so fast and deadly flattening McDaniels
stunning the crowd,myself included into silence. Never saw that crowd
reaction again. Like a cobra striking....We were in AWE !!!

I can only imagine how much more fast and devastating he was against Welterweight comp considering how devastating his punching was to the middleweights. Must've been scary fighting him

No Nicky, REAL LIFE. Like we in the audience,couldn't immediately absorb
the lightning knockout,so we in the crowd were utterly silent. I never seen that moment again...
