Best Answer

Robinson first won the middleweight title from Jake Lamotta in their 6th fight in Feb 1951.

He won the title a second time in his rematch with Randy Turpin in Sept 1951 (Robinson had 8 fights in between, so was somewhat burned out when he lost to Turpin in their first fight only two months earlier).

He won the title a third time knocking out Carl "Bobo" Olsen Dec '55.

Won it a fourth time in his rematch with Gene Fullmer in May '57 and then won it a 5th time in his rematch with Carmen Basilio in 3rd May 1958. Lost the tile for good in 1960 when Paul Pender became the first man to beat Robinson twice.
