I've heard it was a controversial decision.
No, not the Napoles - Perkins bout.

A Tuesday Night Fight in Ciudad Juarez.

After an 'Even' 1st Round, and closely fought Rounds 2 and 3, the stronger
'Mantequilla' overpowered the slick-boxing Perkins, and dominated Rounds 4 and 5.

In Round 6, Eddie (realizing he was behind), tried to go toe-to-toe with Jose,
and got caught, as Napoles floored Perkins with the 'old-school' left-right to the
jaw. Eddie fought well after the knockdown, but he was out-gunned.

Jose stayed the course in Rounds 7 and 8, with a steady attack, and had Perkins
doing a 'dance' near the end of Round 8.

Only Eddie Perkins excellent conditioning and strength allowed him to fight Jose on
'Even' terms in Round 9 and 10.

The scorecards had Jose winning {7-0-3} on all counts.
