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

Meanwhile,,,,,,back in Maracay, Venezuela

July 17, 1976

The 'supposedly 'worn out, tired and semi-retired' Antonio Cervantes scored a
very quick '6-punch' 45-second 'knockout' (KO 1) over American journeyman
'Irish' Beau Jaynes 48-31-0 (13 KO's).

The 30+ age- 'Kid Pambele' moves to 76-10-3 (37 KO's), and remains as the #1 WBA
Light-Welterweight.

And in Saint Just, Perto Rico at the Benitez Boxing Camp,

Gregorio 'Papa' Benitez announces that his son Wilfred will defend his WBA Light-Welterweight
Championship on Saturday Night - October 16, 1976 in Puerto Rico versus either,

#8 WBA Challenger - Eduardo Aracena (Chile) with a record of 29-2-0 (6 KO's)
#9 WBA Challenger - Tony Petronelli (USA) with a record of 35-1-0 (22 KO's)
