Re: Jose Napoles 'The Mark of Brilliance'
By mid-November 1963,
The 23 1/2 year-old Jose Napoles at 31-3-0 (14 KO's) was as good as any
135 lb. Lightweight out there.
Despite a tough (L Dec 10) to Alfredo 'Canelo' Urbina on April 27, 1963 -
Jose bounced back with solid victories over Baby Vasquez and Pulga 'The Flea' Serrano.
A victory over (KO 3) over rival Tony 'La Perla' Perez on November 16, 1963 -
put Jose at the #4 World-ranked Lightweight.
Manager 'Cuco Conde', who also handled World Champion Featherweight - 'Cuban' Sugar Ramos,
was ready to put the charge into Jose, in a quest for a World Championship.
