1947 Sugar Ray Robinson Welterweight Champion of The Word Trophy

1947 Sugar Ray Robinson Welterweight Champion of The Word Trophy

Trophy awarded to legendary boxer Sugar Ray Robinson in 1947. The gold-colored trophy, mounted upon a wooden base, features a generic boxing figure on top. The engraved metal plaque attached to the base reads "World/Welterweight Champion/1947/Ray Robinson." We don't know which organization presented this trophy to Robinson, but he most likely received it while attending a civic banquet held in his honor. Robinson, who is regarded by most boxing experts as the greatest pound-for-pound fighter in boxing history, was the World Welterweight Champion from 1946 to 1951 and later also held the World Middleweight title on two separate occasions. The trophy displays light-to-moderate wear, including a tiny indentation to the metal cup, and the boxing figure may have been repainted. Base: 5.5x5.5". Height: 15.5 inches.
