    Default If SRR beat Maxim.

    What if Robinson had beaten Maxim, and won the LHW title? How much more would that have added to his legacy, being a three weight world champion?

    It would have been a 'big deal'.

    Not that Sugar Ray Robinson lost any 'glitter' with the TKO loss due to exhaustion. But a
    win over Joey Maxim was worth a few Kudo's.

    He is the greatest ever and to win the fight would only cement it.

    A flawless welterweight becoming undisputed light heavy champ would be amazing.

    The ref had to be substituted says how hot it must have been.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Thursday - June 25, 1952

    "The Hottest Day Ever in New York City"

    103* at Fight Time {9:00 PM} at Yankee Stadium in The Bronx, New York.

    New York was going thru a brutal 'hot-and-soggy' heat spell that week.

    It never cooled down during the Fight, and the Temperature in the Ring {under the lights}
    actually went up to 108*.

    Well there was one guy in the ring that night that the heat didn't stop...

    Yes, the champ but not bad for a former welterweight.

    The fact that Welterweights never do that would have made it a unique achievement, but Haye beat Valuev giving up way more weight than that

    Joey Maxim

    One tough S.O.B.

    An extremely smart and cagey boxer. Once he realized he couldn't outbox the flashy
    Sugar Ray, he set the 'trap'.

    The original 'Bait-and-Switch' tactic.

    That is different and you know it.

    A miscalculation by the 'Sugar Ray Robinson Camp'.

    Fun Filled Fact #104 >

    The average 'high-temperature' for New York City in late-June was 78*.

    The median temperature for 10:00 PM {night} was 67*. > Scheduled start time of the bout.

    The Sugar Ray Robinson Camp had an opportunity to 'add' in a provision in the Fight Contract,
    stipulating that if the Temperature Level was more than 5* above the average 'high-temperature'
    3-Days before the bout {and/or estimated Temperature}, they could have postponed the bout to a
    to a later date.

    {Original Date of the bout was scheduled for > Tuesday ~ June 23, 1952}

    'That is a Fact'

    Joey Maxim

    Did nothing great, but did everything good.

    Incredibly durable, and what was described as 'Super Human Stamina'.

    The man never got tired or worn down.



    Thursday ~ June 25, 1952

    Joey Maxim
    Age ............ 30 years, 3 months
    Height ........ 6' 1"
    Reach.......... 71 1/2"
    Weight ....... 173 lbs.
    Record ....... 77-18-4 {20 KO's}

    Stance ....... Orthodox
    Style .......... Boxer/Counter-Puncher

    Joey walked into the Ring against Sugar Ray Robinson at { 178 lbs.}, after the weigh-in.

    Joey was initially a {13-10} Betting-Favorite. But the 'odds' eventually dropped, and
    swung to 'favor' Sugar Ray Robinson.

    Fight Plan >
    To pressure Robinson, by moving straight in and making him work. The 'plan', to force
    Sugar Ray to work hard over the first 2/3's {10 Rounds} of the bout.

    Let Robinson out-work himself.

    Then work over Robinson's body late, to take away his legs. Then fire in calculated
    left-hooks to the body, to force Robinson's hands to lower.

    Then with Robinson's hands lower {late in the bout}, swing with power left-hooks to
    the head.

    Do Not >
    Get into a boxing-match with Robinson early.

    Try to match Robinson in the left-jab department.

    Chase Robinson with a fast-pace.
