Default Re: Oscar 'Shotgun' Albarado

Red,

Oscar 'Shotgun' Albarado had a 'big right hand'.

In 1974, he would have been too much for Carlos Palomino.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

More of 1970,

Following the 'Loss' ( L Dec 10) to Adolph Pruitt on January 27, 1970.

He went to New Orleans (March 30, 1970), to take on 'local favorite' -
and the #2 ranked Welterweight - 29 year-old veteran -'The Trickmaster' Percy Pugh 40-17-0 (5 KO's).

Percy Pugh did a 'dance-and-jab' job on Oscar over 10-Rounds, enroute to a Decision win.

The 'loss' dropped Oscar to 30-3-0, and out of the Top 10 Welterweights.

Percy Pugh (New Orleans Welterweight)

Follow up bouts;

* April 14, 1970..........KO 3....................Charley Green.... 9-4-2 (3 KO's)
* May 5, 1970............KO 9....................Roberto Amaya... 29-7-0 (27 KO's)
* June 2, 1970...........W Unan-Dec 10......Pedro Adigue Jr... 29-10-5 (11 KO's)
* October 6, 1970.......KO 3....................Larry Brazier...... 26-9-1 (12 KO's)
* November 24, 1970...W Split-Dec 10.......Raul Soriano..... 49-17-1 (38 KO's)

By the end of 1970, the 'Shotgun' was 're-loaded' and improved to 35-3-0 (26 KO's), and was
back up to the #8 Welterweight.

The May 5, 1970 bout was held in Honolulu, Hawaii. Oscar took out 'dangerous' Argentinian 'Knockout Artist'
#18 ranked Welterweight - Roberto Oscar Amaya in a 'brutal slugfest'.

June 2, 1970 - The 'Shotgun' wins an impressive 10-Round Decision over Former WBC Light-Welterweight
Champion - Pedro Adigue Jr. in Honolulu, Hawaii. The 26 year-old Filipino Pedro Adigue Jr. had lost his
WBC Championship by 15-Round Decision to Bruno Arcari in his 'last' bout on (January 30, 1970).

October 6, 1970 - Oscar was floored in the 2nd Round, but came back to floor 'Texan' Larry Brazier '3-times'
in the 3rd round.

November 24, 1970 - In San Antonio, Oscar was 'awarded' a hometown "Split-Decision' over Mexican
Welterweight, #12 ranked Raul 'Chato' Soriano. Soriano clearly out-boxed Oscar over the 10-Rounds,
and scored repeatedly with hard jabs to the 'Shotguns' face.

Following the 'disputed' victory over Raul 'Chato' Soriano, there was discussion of the 22 year-old
Texan - Oscar 'Shotgun' Albarado fighting the 'new' World Welterweight Champion - Billy Backus in early-1971.
