Re: Wilfredo Gomez ATG if no Light Featherweight division?
Based upon facts,,,,,,,,
Wilfredo Gomez in November 1974 at age 18 turned professional.
At 5' 5" and 118 lbs., he had a very small window to go after the 118 lb.
Bantamweight Championship - which would have been late-1976 and early-1977.
By mid-1977, the 20 1/2 year-old was fighting at 122 lbs. (Super-Bantawmweight).
No way could he get down to 118 lbs., as he barely made 122 lbs.
Hence, he would be fighting at Featherweight in later-1977.
That means his early 'Top' opponents would be;
* Danny Lopez
* David Kotey
* Ruben Olivares
* Sean O'Grady
* Jose Torres
* Juan Domingo Malvarez
* Rafalel Ortega
* Francisco Coronado
* Cecilio Lastra
* Eusubio Pedroza
* Royal Kobayashi
* Ernesto Herrera
