    1947: Sugar Ray Robinson KO 9 Jimmy Doyle, Cleveland. Retains World Welterweight Title.
    Doyle subsequently dies from head injuries suffered during the bout. Ray swears he dreamt, the evening before the contest that Doyle would perish as a result from the bout. It was "a good, clean fight", but Robinson had the advantage in every round except the sixth (when Sugar Ray was staggered twice and hurt). A single left hook ended the fight, Doyle not having been in any noticeable difficulty until then. "That punch knocked Jimmy rigid. With heels resting against the canvas as if hinged, Doyle's body went down. It struck the floor with a thud, like a rigid mass falling. His head crashed against the padded canvas, and as the referee started the count. Doyle raised his head and rested on his elbows...The count of nine was reached and the bell sounded to end the round. Art Winch, one of his handlers, leaped into the ring to call a halt. Doyle was taken in an ambulance to St. Vincent's Charity Hospital immediately after the injury, and despite all efforts of the medical attendants, he failed to regain consciousness and passed away a few hours after Dr. Spencer Braden, brain specialist. Had operated on him to relieve the pressure on his brain." (Nat Fleischer, in The Ring, September 1947).

    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.
