Default Re: Angel 'Cholo' Espada vs. Jose 'Pipino' Cuevas

Jose 'Pipino' Cuevas vs. Angel 'Cholo' Espada III

December 8, 1979 (Saturday)
Sports Arena, Los Angeles, California

WBA Welterweight Championship

* Jose 'Pipino Cuevas...25-6-0 (22 KO's)
#8 Angel 'Cholo' Espada...43-9-4 (26 KO's)

Pipino Cuevas, 10th Defense of his WBA Championship Crown.

Since his TKO 11 over Angel Espada back in November 1977, Pipino has successfully defended his Title '5' times.

* TKO 9....#2 Harold Weston
* TKO 2 ...#10 Billy Backus
* TKO 2 ...#1 Pete Ranzany
* TKO 2....#5 Scott Clark
* W DEC...#10 Randy Shields

Over the past 2-years, Angel 'Cholo' Espada has only had '4' bouts. He has won all '4' by Knock-out, but
'3' of his opponents were nothing more than soft-punching/soft-chinned 'cannon-fodders'.

The only half-way decent fighter he has fought since the TKO 11 loss in November 1977, was a KO 9 over
'club-fighter' Sam Hailstock 13-2-2 (5 KO's) in February 1979, 10-months earlier.

Since February 1979, Espada has had only one-bout, in June, a KO 6 over Fitzroy Edward 6-1-1 (3 KO's), who was
nothing more than a 6-round Preliminary-fighter.
