Default Re: Antonio Cervantes 'Went in the Tank versus Wilfred Benetiz'

natonic,

Don King signed Roberto Duran to a '3-bout package' in October 1975.

His first fight as part of that package was versus Leonico Ortiz in Puerto Rico
in December 1975.

Then Angel Mayoral was scheduled for a Febraury 1976 WBA Lightweight Title Defense in Las Vegas.

Then Don King had 'pencilled in' - Roberto Duran vs Antonio Cervantes for May/June 1976.

Roberto never went through with the bout with Angel Mayoral, and the 'package deal'
went 'up-in-smoke'.
