Default Re: Oscar 'Shotgun' Albarado


Any detailed information on Maunel 'Manopla' Fiero, the 6' 0" tall - Mexican-American Welterweight.

From what I've read, he was one 'hard puncher', who had an exciting style.

March 30, 1971 - Honolulu, Hawaii

Oscar Albarado 35-3-0 (26 KO's) and the #8 Welterweight was 'upset' by Decision (L Unan. Dec 10)
to #18 ranked Welterweight - Manuel 'Manopla' Fiero 22-2-0 (17 KO's).

23 year-old 'Manopla' Fiero (Los Angeles) - using his 5" height and reach advantage was able to repeatedly nail
the 'onrushing' 22 year-old (Texan) Albarado with hard right hands, to win a convincing 10-Round Decision over the
Top 10 ranked Welterweight.

'Manopla' Fiero the #18 ranked Welterweight, was never threatened by the big right hand of 'Shotgun' Albarado,
as his longer reach and sharper punching was the main ingredient in winning the decision.

Scorecards ( 47-44 / 47-43 / 47-44 ) Scoring by the 5-Point system.

The 'loss' by Oscar Albarado will undoubtedly put his quest for a chance at the World Welterweight back a step.
