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

Antonio 'Kid Pambele' Cervantes

Listed Fight Purse (1974)

October 26, 1974..... vs. #4 Shinichi Kadota (Tokyo, Japan)
($80,000).... Antonio Cervantes makes his '8th-Defense' by clobbering {KO 8}
Japan's - Shinichi Kadota.

In front of 8000 'partisan' Japanese fans at the Nihon University Auditorium, 'Kid Pambele'
has too much power and better technique in sending the southpaw Kadaota to the canvas
in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and '3-times' in the 8th Round.

The 'final knockdown' occurred at 1:42 of the Round, indicating an automatic knockout
stoppage.

The 28 1/2 year old (going on age 34) Colombian improves his record to 70-9-3 (32 KO's).

This was Antonio Cervantes' largest fight purse he had ever received.

Antonio Cervantes raises his arms, after dropping Shinichi Kadota an 8th and 'final time'.
