1952-03-13 Sugar Ray Robinson w pts 15 Carl Bobo Olson, Civic Auditorium, San Francisco, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: Jack Downey. Scorecards: 86½-79½, 84½-80 ½, 85½-79½. Having been inactive for six months, when the champion started to tire after the sixth round Olson (159½) came more and more into the fight as he took everything thrown at him. After starting strongly, boxing quite brilliantly at times, Robinson (157½) began to come under pressure from steady body attacks, and it was not until the 11th that he rallied as Olson showed signs of the fast pace he had set. Although Olson made a good showing in the 14th, the final session was all Robinson as he banged in vicious barrages to head and body.
