    Sugar Ray Robinson 1949 Top Performer In Boxing Trophy Sugar Ray Robinson is the man considered by many boxing historians to have been the greatest fighter, "pound for pound," who ever fought. His career stretched over three decades. He won the World Welterweight Title and went on to win the World Middleweight Title as well. His career included victories over a virtual "Who's Who" of boxing, men like: Sammy Angott, Henry Armstrong, "Kid" Gavilan, Tommy Bell, Jake LaMotta, "Bobo" Olson, Gene Fullmer, Randy Turpin and Carmen Basilio. In 1950 Sport Magazine voted Robinson the "Top Performer" for 1949 and presented him with this trophy. Robinson earned the award for his performances in the ring that included victories over Kid Gavilan and Steve Belloise. The trophy stands 17.5" tall. It features a solid bronze figure on a wood base with a plaque that reads, "To Ray Robinson Top Performer of 1949 in Boxing January 19, 1950." This trophy is in fine condition with no noticeable flaws. Here's an opportunity to acquire a rare and important award from one of boxing's all-time greats. Accompanying the trophy is a letter of authenticity from the wife of Sugar Ray Robinson with an additional LOA from Craig Hamilton/ JO Sports.
