Re: Jose Napoles 'The Mark of Brilliance'
Pernell Whitaker was a tremendous boxer, and a super talent.
But, he just wouldn't have the guns to ward off Jose Napoles.
The mid-1960's 'Mantequilla' was a monster in the ring at 135 lbs.
or 140 lbs.
Jose 'destroyed' a fabulous fighter in Johnny Santos (KO 3) in February 1966.
Now, Johnny Santos would have given Pernell Whitaker one hell of a fight, because
he was just as fast.
Now, 'Sweet Pea' won fights, but he was not 'destroying' his opponents.
