Sugar Roy Agrees To Take Shot At Third Boxing Title New York-(P)-Does Sugar Ray Robinson rate with super champs like Bob Fitzsimmons and Henry Armstrong? Boxing fans will get the answer .June 23 at Yankee Stadium when Robinson, former welterweight champ and current middleweight king, gets a crack at Joey Maxim's lightheavyweight crown in a 15- lound bout. If Robinson succeeds, he will become the third man in history to hold three division championships. Fitfc won the middle, heavy and light heavy in that order. Hammering Henry held the feather light and welter titles simultane ously. Sugar Ray had to give up his welter crown the night he knocked out Jake LaMotti lo win the 160' pound title. He probably will have to vacate the middle chimpionship for a crack at Maxim. But, ii ne wins the light heavy, he migh' . give it up and return to his own middleweight division after he gives Maxim the required return , bout within 90 days. . Robinson, playing the reluctant dragon, finally broke, down and t accepted the Maxim-match yesterday, -.according to Jinr Norris International Boxing Club president. The managers 1 --George Gainford (Hoblnson) and Jack Kearns · (Maxim) always were in favoh . Both fighters arc due to show up today to sign an official contract before the New York State i Athletic Commission.
