Robinson vs. Docusen was "the fastest and most exciting battle seen in a Chicago ring since the Rocky Graziano-Tony Zale battle in the Stadium a year before. Docusen proved a foeman worthy of Robinson's keenest steel. ... The flashy Filipino was not daunted in the least by Robinson's reputation. For ten rounds Docusen fought Robinson on fairly even terms, and there was little to choose. ... Robinson pulled his waning forces together at the start of the eleventh." Docusen was dazed by the attack and then Robinson caught him with a left hook that put him down for a nine-count. Robinson "had fought himself out in the previous flurry and lacked the power to finish his reeling opponent. For the remainder of the fight Robinson had the upper hand."

Quotes from report by Gene Engel in The Ring, September 1948, page 33.

If only this fight is filmed in good quality and to completion. It pains me to think how many precious fight films are simply lost to time.
