Default Undefeated sensation,lost 2 close decisions to an immortal/than ruined by managers ba

I was a sensational prospect who went 44 fights without defeat, til I lost 2 squeaky decisions to an immortal. Was a champ til my famous manager foolishly matched me with a much bigger sensation who kod me and ruined me forever...My manager was to blame. I am ?

A bright future loomed ahead til his manager Al Weill [manager of Rocky Marciano later], matched the 8 pound lighter Servo with the MW
grenade throwing Rocky Graziano ,who was too strong for the smaller Servo who was kod with a bad deviated septum nose injury,which ended Servo's boxing career forever...A bad decision made by Al Weill...

Graziano feasted on a few welters.

Graziano once said, "I'm the best middleweight in the welterweight division." It was attributed to him anyway.

shame Marty was good and some guys are not supposed to move up. Napoles,Hagler,Monzon are good examples of wise decisions to stay in your own kingdom with Napoles making the mistake of being a V good little man moving up to fight a V good bigger man

Just reading boxrec, The judges scores for Robinson were 3-6 and 1-9 with one judge (the referee) having it 5-3 to Servo.

I have to say (without watching it of course) that in what seems to have been at worst a close fight, 1-9 really does seem a little dodgey, doesnt it?

B, reading about those two fights between Robinson and Servo
those times, I recall they were very controversial decisions, and plenty of booing, after the decisions were rendered. Robinson at almost 6ft, towered over Marty Servo...Too bad that Servo lost 3 years in the service during what should have been his prime years, and of course the foolish move that Al Weill made matching up the 8 pound lighter Servo with the young and much bigger Rocky Graziano who was a load to face those days...Yessir.
