Today is Valentine’s Day, a day for love all around the world who celebrate this holiday. Well for boxing fans, February 14 is a very special day as well. On this day in 1951 World Welterweight champion”Sugar” Ray Robinson moved up in weight to challenge World Middleweight champion in Chicago, Illinios. This was the sixth and final meeting between Robinson and LaMotta with the Sugar man defeating LaMotta on four of their five previous meetings. The lone defeat to LaMotta was Robinson’s only loss at the time of this fight (Robinson’s record entering this clash was an incredible 122-1, 78 KO’s). In a savage fight known as the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, Robinson defeated LaMotta, stopping him in the 14th round. Sit back and watch “Sugar” Ray Robinson and all of his mastery. Happy Valentine’s Day boxing fans!
