Basora entered the ring at 1J5X to Robinson's 154-li, but the Sugar said he bad learned Basora welgn- cd 168 earlier In Ihe week. "1 knew he couldn't take off that, much weight without It hurting him," liobinson said. "I figured I'd give him everything I had early and if I didn't knock htm out In three rounds he'd be so weak hs'd collapse. And Robinson dropped a belated hint to Pusarl, saying that It had hurt his power when he took off weight sharply for the New York bout. He hinted that If Fusari hart adopted a similar "campaign" Charley might now be the world welter king. Suffers Ear Injury Robinson really poured it *>n Ba.sora. The seconds hadn't gotten down the steps when Basora wa.i on the floor, rolling with a whistling lelt hook to the right ear. Ills ear was cut so badly it wa* still bleeding when Uie tight was over. Dr. Leonard Freda of th» State Athletic Commission, who refused lo permit Basora to get up for six or seven minutes, said later he may have suffered an ear puncture. A crowd of 4,145. well under «- pectatloa'i, paid $15,155 of which $12,435 was net. Since Robinson owes some 15,500 for running -out on a previous light with Basora, hi* take home pay amounts to About *2,000 on a $7,500 guarantee.
