1955-12-09 Sugar Ray Robinson w co 2 (15) Carl Bobo Olson, The Stadium, Chicago, Illinois, USA - WORLD. Referee: Frank Sikora. Back in business after two and a half years out of the ring and seven comeback fights, Robinson (159¾) quickly made his mark after a quiet opening round. Following a few brief flurries by the champion, after Robinson stepped in with a left to the body before Olson (159¼) could pull himself together he was sent crashing from a right uppercut. Although Olson began to move he was counted out with just nine seconds of the round remaining.
