    I've looked at this again and again and I think Turpin might just have avoided it by pulling away and in doing so lost his balance. His legs don't buckle either.

    Hard to tell, but looks to me like it grazed him as he was trying to avoid it. Turpin's head moved significantly as if more if he wasn't hit at all . But who knows

    100% caught him on his left cheek.

    Looks to me like it hits him.

    I don’t think there’s any doubt he’s hit, and well hit.
    I hadn’t realised he’d been significently hurt by another right hand earlier in the round.
    If he’d fired back when backed into the ropes Goldstein mightn’t have stepped in.

    The hook doesn't land but the right hand does.

    Looking at it again, I'm still not convinced it lands.

    His body turns away from the punch but his head doesn't turn as you would expect from the impact of a punch.

    Yes, I mentioned that in another thread. Turpin concentrated on making Robinson miss and on the whole he did that quite effectively but in not firing back it looked like he was helpless.

    This isn't the 10th round. This is supposed to be the 3rd round.

    I say 'supposed' because you can never be sure with films of the old fights. You often see the same footage repeated several rounds later or the same action shown again but from a different angle.

    Sure it lands. Short, crisp right behind the ear, which has a pretty pronounced effect.

    I'm still not convinced it lands and would you really call that a short punch?

    The right hand that we're debating whether it lands, you would regard that as a short punch?

    The jaw is extended from the power of the right hand, its not his turning his head to avoid the punch, you wouldn't see that distortion of Turpins face from that. A cleanly landed right hand.

    Yes. Seems odd that you're belaboring the point. The one that puts the dip in his knees, right?
