Still no visits to the United States for Jose 'Mantequilla' Napoles.
Sunday - June 2, 1968 (Mexico City)
The #2 WBA Light-Welterweight will take on Peter Cobblah, "The Ghana Terror".
Cobblah, who had been campaiging in Europe, has relocated to Mexico City.
The 5' 4" - 'muscular' 34 year-old Ghanan, is a 'veteran Warrior', with a record of
43-35-3 (33 KO's), who makes you work every second of every round.
Jose (140 lbs.) was in control from the out-set, but the veteran Cobblah (141 lbs.) made him work in
every round. Each time Napoles took a breather, the muscular 5' 4" Ghanan charged
in close, and slugged away.
Napoles had a 5-1 Rounds lead after 6-Rounds, and was dominant.
Napoles turned very aggressive in Rounds 7 and 8, as Cobblah started to fade. But
Cobblah would not back down, and fought back with vigor in Rounds 9 and 10, as
'Mantequilla' cruised down the stretch with a comfortable points lead.
