Maybe the most 'under-rated' Great.
Starting as an 18 year-old - 5' 7" 126 lb. - Featherweight in Havana, Cuba
ran through a string of fairly impressive wins to go 20-1-0 (6 KO's).
Had the look of early brilliance, showing fast hands and great natural boxing skills.
Of course, in June 1961 - Mr. Napoles professional boxing career was stalled in Cuba,
and Jose soon found himself out of boxing for 1-year.
By July 1962, Mexico City was home.
