Jose 'Mantequilla' Napoles does something nobody else had done.
27 year-old 'Mantequilla' knocks down, and stops (KO 7) 'Kansas' Johnny Brooks 38-16-5 (7 KO's).
Johhny Brooks, the 28 year-old Nevada State Weltwerweight Champion had never
been floored, and has only been stopped once before, in his 7-year / 59-bout career.
Both fighters weigh in at 141 lbs., and 'Mantequilla' turns it on in Round 5, against the
tough Mid-West journeyman. Jose, rips combinations in Rounds 5 and 6, putting
Johnny down in each round.
Round 7, one more time 'Kansas' Johnny is pounded to the canvas, where he is
A super impressive win for La Marvela Cubana.
Next up for Jose Napoles, a '4th-bout' with 'American' Knockout Artist - LC Morgan.
