Sugar Ray Robinson

Jayden Tyler

Sugar Ray's childhood

His father was not around much so his mother decided to move to Harlem,New York. His mother was worried that her son would get caught up in gangs and other bad stuff so they turned to a church, where there was a boxing club and he got into it.


he is considered one of the greatest boxers of all time and he held the welterweight title from 1946-1951. And to top it off in 1958 he became the first boxer to win a divisional world championship 5 times.


I think he was a hard worker because he never gave up. I also think he was peaceful because even though he was a boxer he never wanted anyone to get hurt
