CHICAGO (P)-Sugar Ray Rob-
inson brushed back the years for
one electrifying burst of violence
Wednesday night to knock out
middle weight champion Gene
Fuilmer with a left hook to the
jaw in 1:27 of the fifth round at
Chicago Stadium.
Thus Sugar Ray became the first
man ever to win the world's mid-
dleweight title four times.
Robinson, a 3;/2 to 1 underdog,
softened up the 25-year-old chai-
piop with two solid right-hand
punches to the body, then drove
home a terrific left that dropped
Fullmer to the deck. .
First Stop in 44 Bouts
Writhing on the canvas, Fullmer

attempted to get up. But he jack-
knifed back on his face and was
counted out by Referee Frank
Sikora, the first time he had been
stopped in his 44-bout career.
With one flash from his glorious
past, the man who once was called
"the greatest fighter pound for
pound in the world" avenged his
unanimous decision defeat by the
sturdy bull-boy from West Jordan,
Utah, at New York's Madison
Square Garden Jan. 2.
This was a different Robinson
from the inept, faded workman
whorclutched5desperately in an
effort to go 15 rounds only four
Imonths ago.

The bull-necked champ from the
West had been banging away at
Robinson's body and charging in
fearlessly under Robinson's spor-
adic fire in the earlier rounds.
In fact, Fullmer had piled up a
slender 19-18 lead on points on the
cards of all three officials in the
first four rounds.
Referee Sikora had warned
Fullmer for a cracking left hook
that strayed low in the third
round, but he did not take away
any points under the "five-point
must system" that is used in I1i-
nois scoring.
Robinson To Meet Basilic
Robinson's dramatic upset vic-
tory, a startling form reversal

from his January effort, earned
him a July match with welter-
weight champion Carmen Basilio
that probably will be signed soon
for the Yankee Stadium.
When Robinson finally got his
chance to turn it on Wednesday
night, he let loose with both hands
with deadening effect.
Although the record books say
Robinson willhbe 37 Friday, he in-
sists his correct age will be 36. In
any event, he punched with his
effectiveness of old in that one
blinding flurry that ended Full-

mer's reign at one day short of
four months.
Tired before Fifth
As Robinson stretched out iri
his corner gefore the fifth, he
looked tired. When Fullmer flailed
away with a wild right,Robinson
stepped away and slammed a hard
right to the body.
After another Fullmer right
hand missed its mark, Robinson
dug a right deep to the body and
followed with another right to the
body, As Fullmer straightened yp,
Robinson pulled the trigger on the
left hook that ended it.

Major League
Stan Musial and Ted Williams
are on the top of the National and
American League batting races,
respectively, as the season passes
the two week mark.
Musial, who'batted .310 last sea-
son has really started off with a
bang this year. Against Chicago
two days ago, Musial belted his
2,800 hit of his career.
Williams hit .345 last season,
and he is currently blasting at a
.395 pace. According to the new
ruling Williams or any other hitter
will need 477 titalat bats including
walks to be in competition for the
batting title.
As one looks down the list of the
top hitters in each league he will
see that there are only familiar
names in the lists. There is not
one rookie at this time who is in
contention for the batting title.
Joe Adcock, who blasted 38 home
runs last year to tie for second in
this department has already belted
five.
