Boxing legend Sugar Ray Robinson (1921-1989) is welcomed home from London on August 1, 1951 by his wife Edna Mae (1915-2002) and his sister Evelyn Robinson Nelson (1919-2009). Mr. Robinson was returning home after a loss to British champion Randy Turpin. He told reporters upon arrival, “It’ll be a different story when I fight Randy Turpin again next month.” He won the rematch against Mr. Turpin just one month later in New York City.
