Robinson-Turpin Champion Bout in London Already Sellout LONDON, England, June 9 UP —Promoter Jack Solomons reported today that the July 10 world middleweight championship fight between Ray "Sugar" Robinson and Randolph Turpin of England has produced one of the fastest sellouts in British boxing history. Since Wednesday, when the announcement of the fight was made, a steady stream of mail trucks have been dumping applications for tickets at Solomons office iri Windmill Street, just off Piccadilly Circus. Solomons appealed to fight fans not to send any more applications for tickets. "We are so full up with applications that we have not yet been able to open yesterdays mail," he said.
