Huge 1957 photograph of Sugar Ray Robinson as he swings with a wild uppercut to the body of Carmen Basilio during their bout at Yankee Stadium. Almost certainly a unique image in this huge oversized format, the photo is crystal clear with some minimal handling wear. One of the best Robinson images out there and it is a fantastic shot at the photographers laying on the mat trying to get the shot from the opposite angle! Photographer on this one is Charles Hoff of the New York Daily News who is one of the most famous of the era.
