    Description

    Randy Turpin vs. Sugar Ray Robinson Fight (RKO, 1951). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A. Sports.
    This poster advertises the boxing rematch of Turpin vs. Robinson. The first time Turpin won and took the Middleweight title from Robinson by a decision from the judges after fifteen rounds. Turpin's championship reign would be short-lived. In the rematch Turpin came to the United States; where he lost his crown to Robinson by a tenth round TKO with eight seconds left in the round. An unrestored poster that may be slightly brittle due to age, show some paper loss or staining, very minor tape stains, writing in an unobtrusive place, and/or some very slight fading to colors. It is most likely in need of some degree of work or restoration. Silverfish damage at the folds and along the borders. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Folded, Very Good+.
