I feel like it’s a matter of time before I get my shot to show everyone I am the top welterweight in the world. I fought some tough guys in my career and show I can compete and beat them,” said Robinson.

He has always been a class act in and out of the ring and we feel great that he is a part of our team. It’s just a matter of time when the world will see he is the best in the welterweight division,”Joe Quiambao, Director of Boxing for Split-T Management.
