Revered by Muhammad Ali as, "the King, the master, my idol"; and by The Ring magazine as "pound for pound, the greatest boxer of all time"; six-time world champion boxer Sugar Ray Robinson was immortalized today at Madison Square Garden with a commemorative postage stamp. The dedication ceremony took place during the Daily News Golden Gloves Amateur Boxing Tournament finals.

One hundred million stamps, in the style of a vintage 1940s and '50s fight poster depicting Robinson in his peak fighting years, will be available in New York City Post Offices today and nationwide Saturday, April 8.
