Re: Antonio Cervantes 'Went in the Tank versus Wilfred Benetiz'
The tournament for the 'vacant' WBA Light-Welterweight Championship got off to a 'slow start' in early 1977.
Antonio Cervantes was not 'in-shape' in January, and Hector Thompson (Australia) had injured his knee again.
The Championship was re-scheduled for March, but #2 Hector Thompson was still not ready, and
#3 Carlos Maria Giminez was still making 'decent money' picking up several easy fights in Argentina.
