Don't you recall where you first heard about the fight? Was it mentioned in any paper in the build up?C, a couple of years ago, several prominent boxing historians tried to solve this puzzle with no success...I have searched record books,
Web sites, and come up short...As sure as I am replying to you I SAW this event occur, and I am still perplexed...The Coney Island Arena was torn down in the late 1950s, Ray Robinson is dead and Bobby ***** is dead, and I am still bewildered....
P.S. my gut feeling and my inner thoughts now is that Bobby ***** might have SUBSTITUTED for anothe boxer in this bout and the next day news report did not
mention ***** name but the original opponent...BUT there is NO record of Robby fighting any fighter in BKLYN NY, other than Bobby Brown
in 1950, two months before the first Robinson? ***** fight 1950.....It is a mystery meant for Sherlock Holmes to solve, but alas, he too is dead..
