Fight Notes: 

"Sugar Ray Robinson, world welterweight champion, was awarded an unpopular split 10 round decision tonight over middleweight veteran Georgie Abrams after their non-title brawl at MSG. The fans indicated loudly that they thought Abrams had won the fight, particularly after Robinson had been penalized in the 7th and 8th rounds for fouling his heavier opponent with low blows. Robinson hurt Georgie with a hard right to the chin in the 2nd round and had him groggy with two following left hooks, but the game veteran fought back fiercely. The aggressive, compact Abrams staggered Robinson with hard straight rights to the head twice in the 6th round and once in the 9th. Robinson left the ring bleeding from a deep gash at the corner of his right eye and from a slight gash on his left brow. Abrams was bleeding from cuts on his right brow and lower lip." - United Press

Robinson was a 2-1 favorite.
A crowd of 15,064 produced a gate of $80,772.
Abrams faced a 30-day suspension for weighing in at 162 pounds, which was one pound over his contracted weight.
Cuts suffered by Robinson in this bout postponed his scheduled welterweight title defense against Jimmy Doyle from the original May 30 date to June 24.
"The verdict (for Robinson) was accompanied by a solid round of boos." World Boxing, February 1995, page 48.
