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

August 1974

Following his successful title defense in July 1974 in Cartagena, Colombia -

Political unrest, and persistent insurgencies in Colombia, force Antonio Cervantes
to move out of his country 'temporarily', and flee to Caracas, Venezuela.

His manager, Ramiro Machado will control his fighter's activities from Venezuela,
including trying to secure a bout with the WBA Lightweight Champion from
Panama - Roberto Duran.

During this span in late-1974 and 1975, 'Kid Pambele' will fight in order -
* Tokyo, Japan
* Caracas, Venezuela
* Panama City, Panama
* Caracas, Venezuela
* Panama City, Panama
