Default Re: Jose Napoles 'The Mark of Brilliance'

At the end of 1964,

Jose Napoles was clearly the #1 Lightweight / #1 Light-Welterweight

In early 1965, 'Knockouts' over (KO 5) Carlos Rios, and (KO 3) LC Morgan put
Jose at 40-3-0 (23 KO's) and riding '10-straight' knockouts.

Setting up a March 25, 1965 bout in Caracas, Venezuela against the top
European Lightweight, Italian Lightweight Champion - Giordano Campari 77-12-4 (30 KO's).

The 5' 8 1/2" Italiano claimed, 'I will box circles around this Cuban. He has no style or class.
I will teach him about proper European style boxing. His raw bull-charging will do him no good
against a pure boxer like myself.'
