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


Gregorio 'Papa' Benitez never had any intentions of giving Antonio Cervantes a rematch
with 'Wilfred' in December 1976, and 'never' one outside of Puerto Rico.

Basically, 'Papa' Benitez screwed the WBA, Antonio Cervantes and Ramiro Machado.

The initial 'deal' had Wilfred defending versus 'Kid Pambele' on Sunday, December 5, 1976
and in Maracay, Venezuela - at the Maestranza Cesar Grion 'Bull Ring'

That 'Latin American' bout would have netted both fighters around $150,000 each, from the
8000 seating capacity - Moorish Jewel 'Bull Ring'.

Here is where the 18 year-old Wilfred Benitez would have been 'slaughtered' by 'Kid Pambele'
in a legitimate Championship Bout.
