In 1947, an American boxer, Sugar Ray Robinson, initially turned down one of his fights he was to have. Reason was that he had a dream a night before the fight that he killed his opponent in the ring. However, his priest convinced him to carry on with the fight, which he eventually did. He went into the ring and knocked his opponent out of the world. He killed his opponent, Jimmy Doyle, in the 8th round.
Before the fight, Doyle was pushing himself hard to fight in order to buy his mother a house. After his death in 1947, Robinson gave the earnings of his next four fights to Doyle’s mother so she could buy the house.
