Plaze De Toros- Merida, Yucatan
Jose 'Mantequilla' Napoles - "La Marvela Cubana'
Charles Watson - "El Motivo Peleador"
Jose Napoles was already being proclaimed as the 'Uncrowned King'
of the Light-Welterweights. The 27 year-old, with a record of 51-4-0
and (33 KO's) was the #2 WBA Ranked 140 lb. boxer.
Charles Watson, the 23 year-old Welterweight from Phoenix, Arizona -
a 'club-fighter' with a record of 16-16-1 (6 KO's).
In nothing more than a 'work-out', Jose Napoles entertains the 'Bull Ring' fans with
a smooth boxing performance of jabbing and moving for 5-Rounds.
After giving the Yucatan fans an education on the 'Art of-Boxing', Napoles opens
up Round 6 with a '13-punch barrage' flooring the tough Arizona club-fighter.
Charlie Watson rises up at the 7-Count, but is too dazed to continue.
