IVAN "MIGHTY" Robinson, the former No. 1-ranked featherweight in the world, was inducted into the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame. Robinson was joined by Philly boxing judge Lynne Carter and, posthumously, Robert Grasso, who also was a boxing judge.
Robinson, 41, was 32-12-1 as a professional, which included 12 knockouts. He fought from 1992-2008. His most memorable moments might have been his two points victories over Arturo Gatti in 1998. His first victory was acclaimed as the Fight of the Year by the Boxing Writers of America and The Ring magazine. Robinson lost his only bid for a world title, a unanimous decision to defending IBF lightweight champ Philip Holiday, of South Africa, in 1996.
