Sugar Ray Robinson has won and lost the middleweight title (in the ring that is) more times than any other fighter in history. Having lost it again to Gene Fullmer in January he will try to get it back a fourth time at Chicago Stadium on May 1. For an estimate of his chances, see Martin Kane's PREVIEW of the fight on page 28.
