Noted sparring partners of Robinson tended to be experienced undercard fighters.

Wade and Cocoa Kid are unique in that they were big-name fighters used by Robinson and both were effectively retired when made headlines because of incidents.

Excellent report! Do you know if Robinson was considered rough on the sparring partners, besides sometimes apparently not paying them for their services?

No evidence to suggest he was or wasn't. However I would assume given his comment below that the answer may of been no.

"I was never a killer, like some fighters. I never enjoyed knocking out a guy who I knew had no chance to beat me."
